TOPIC: Stuck trying to use 3DES

Stuck trying to use 3DES 18 Years, 7 Months ago  
I followed the directions to set up access to a server that uses 3DES and I was sent a key file from the person on the other end. However, my application does not seem to recognize it.

The other party made the key file using another secure shell client, besides this one, but I assumed that being the same encryption, I would be okay. The error I get is "The specified key file does not contain an SSH private key." Do I have to use the same SSH telnet client as he is using to get this to work? It was a .pnk file.

It might work, but remember.... SSH1 and SSH2 use different key formats. You need to know if it is an SSH1 or SSH2 key, then use the correct protocol.

AbsoluteTelnet uses keys in the same format as OpenSSH. These can easily be generated on the server side using ssh-keygen, but other clients may store keys in different file formats.
