You have two options when enabling public-key authentication to the SSH Secure Shell Windows Server - GUI or config file. Note the restrictions in public-key authentication for domain users.

Using the GUI Config Tool

  1. Start the configuration program by clicking Start -> Programs -> SSH Secure Shell Server -> Configuration.

  2. Click User Authentication.

  3. Choose to allow or require public key authentication.

Note: Password authentication has to be also allowed/required in addition to public-key authentication for version 3.0 and earlier.
