ssh key

Hi all,

I have a sshkey which I use to connect from my unix box to a linux box without any issue......

however I downloaded this same key to my laptop and tried to connect to the same linux box but it failed.....

As my laptop is running MS Vista I guessing I going have to convert it ... any ideas on how... any pointers greatly apperiacted ...

thanking you all inadvance...

Maybe you better create a new public/private key pair on your Vista box and add the public key to the authorized_keys on your Linux box. Don't forget to press enter when asked for a password/passphrase.
