How to setup SSH authentication

Asked by El Stepherino on 2016-10-30

I have a remote SSH repository form which I need copy a branch and save to my windows box. The remote repository is typically accessed using sftp without password prompt (using public/private key).

How do I configure Bazaar Explorer to use an existing SSH key?

Note: the public key is already added to the remote host's authorized_keys.

The error I get is [bzr: ERROR: Connection error: Unable to authenticate to SSH host as ...]

I can remotely access this repository using puTTY without a problem.

Please help.

I found instructions on using pageant.exe (from the putty toolkit), which solved my problem.
