Connect to console with putty and Certificate


Log into the Server using Putty with username and Password is no Problem, when I try to set up using a certifikate I get the error “Server refused our key”. Is there something special to set on Nethserver to use keys? On other Linux versions, also with openssl and putty there is no Prolem.
Using Nethserver latest version with all patches, putty 0.7

Hi @pnemenz,

I found this documentation and it worked, I could login with putty with username and ppk file.
