Hi Dru,


I am using putty to access my firewall. I setup ssh2 up a long time ago : ^) I read your article, probably need to read it a few more times and I will.


When I launch the putty session to my host, my auth log shows:


sshd[42828]: Accepted keyboard-interactive/pam for <username> from <ipaddress> port <#> ssh2


I would like to use RSA authentication. What do I need to do? Putty has a keygen utility - do I need to use that to generate the keys and move them to my target server? or do I generate the keys from the server side and import them into putty?

    Yes, you can use puttygen and pageant. Full instructions can be found in Chapters 8 and 9 of the PuTTY User Manual:
