When you are working with private (and public) keys generated by OpenSSH, you will have files called id_dsa and id_dsa.pub. These files can't be used in Putty directly. Instead they need to be converted to something else using PuTTYgen, also available from the Putty page. To do this, follow these simple steps. Lets assume you already have Putty installed on your Windows machine.
- Download PuTTYgen.
- Load your key, mine is called id_dsa. Enter your passphrase.
- Save the private key, I saved mine as id_dsa.ppk.
Your original private key (id_dsa) is now converted and saved as a putty private key. (id_dsa.ppk) There are now two things you might want to do, using it directly, or using it with an agent.
