Hello Experts, I am using SSH secure shell client(version 3.2.9. build 283) to connect to another Linux box (Ubuntu) using my own private key. Could you please help me how can i provide my private key in SSH client and connect it to the other system. It will be great if you point me to correct documentation.

Thanks in advance, -Amol

Considering your keys are properly setup on both boxes, simply issuing a ssh should use them. On destination box, the .ssh folder should have 755 mod, authorized_key file should be 644 whereas user's home should always be 600.
