Question parsing error when I run RSYNC

This is what I get when I run the RSYNC command. I just created brand new ssh2 rsa keys.

warning: /come/out/and/play/.ssh2/id_rsa_2048_a: 4: parsing line failed.
warning: /come/out/and/play/.ssh2/id_rsa_2048_a: 5: parsing line failed.
warning:   "   "   "   "   "   "        "      "         "   "    6-22  " 
mickeys password:

I do not understand this at all.

Any help please!

Does it come up when you use SSH on its own?

Does the format of the key file look okay to you? How did you generate the keys?

From my experience with ssh the key is always exactly 1(!) line. I wonder if you have opened it with a text editor and broken up this one line into several ones (which would explain the "line 4 parsing error"). Another possibility is you have copied via cut&paste and this has broken the lines up at window boundaries.

Just an idea, i hope it helps.

It turns out that the keys were the issue. And you were right about the copy and pasting.

Thank you!
