What have I done:
I'm trying to connect to my remote server with private key with
ssh -i privkey.ppk root@ip
But it's returning an error.
Load key "privkey.ppk": invalid format root@ip: Permission denied (publickey).
I should be able to login into my remote server with ssh key.
Key file content:
PuTTY-User-Key-File-2: ssh-rsa Encryption: aes256-cbc Comment: rsa-key-20181019 Public-Lines: 6 some lines Private-Lines: 14 some lines Private-MAC: some letters
OS: Ubuntu 18.04
- I'm using the same key in putty, termius to login into my remote server and its working fine
- Ansible ping cmd also returning the same result)
