How To Sftp Into Cloud VMs via Private Key


   Assume we have already putty into the VMs well with key pairs. We need to use sftp to upload files into cloud VMs. We have to use public/private key pair to login the OS


  • First we need to export openssh priviate keys from PUTTYgen
  • Load your private key via puttygen
  • Go to Conversions->Export OpenSSH and export your private key (ie d:\myprivatekey)
  • Then use sftp -oIdentityFile=myprivatekey opc@<hostname or ip>
  • sftp>put  <file>
