putty setup

1. Generate your keys;

run puttygen along the bottom select ssh2 dsa and then click on generate, follow the instructions, do not type in a passphrase if you do not want to input password every time. and then save the public & private keys.

2. Copy your public key into your unix home directory:

You need to set up ssh2 for your unix code 1st, run ssh-keygen2 when logged into unix. When it's done, cd into ~/.ssh2 (and if interested, do an ls -l, this where the key went). FTP your putty public key to here, call it something like Edit the authorization file add the new line: Key

3. Use putty;

Select Session and select SSH, type in hawker at the hostname box (at this point if you go to the saved session box, give it a name like hawker & select save you can retrieve these settings next time). select Connection, in the auto-login username type your username. select Connection/ SSH, click on SSH protocol version 2. select Connection/ SSH/Auth, give it the location where private key is. Click on Open when you are ready. The first time you use it you will get a prompt about the server's key not being saved & do you trust it, select yes, this won't happen again.
