Linux: Convert an openssh key into putty ppk format


you want to use a openssh generated ssh key with Putty and PuttyAgent and get an error message like this:

openssh key inport error
openssh key inport error

To load such a key into puttyagent you have to convert it. You can use puttygen to do this. Open puttygen and load the private key.
Puttygen load key

puttygen load success

After loading save the private key in ppk format.

puttygen save as ppk
