Using PuTTY to connect to the server:

Open PuTTY.exe in the list of Windows programs and proceed with the following steps.

  • In the "Category" section, select "Session" and enter the following:

    • Host Name (or IP address):
    • Port: 22
    • Connection type: SSH
PuTTY configuration
  • Under "Category", expand "Connection", expand "SSH", and then click "Auth".
  • Click "Browse" and then locate and select your newly generated private key.
  • Click "Open" to start the session.

    • If you previously set a password for your private key and did not add it to the PuTTY SSH authentication agent, you will now be prompted to enter it.
    • If you are connecting to an instance for the first time, you may get a message that the server host key is not cached in the registry. Click "Yes" to continue the connection.

You can then log in without entering a password.
