Yes, Tectia server can use also OpenSSH keys for hostkeys. This just needs to be configured on the server configuration. On Windows this can be done using the Server Configuration GUI and on Unix it needs to be configured manually as described here.

Can I use same public key in Tectia MFT event to use as authentication while trying to set up connection with remote sftp server?

It is indeed possible to use OpenSSH keys for public-key authentication in Tectia Client and MFT Events.

However I would advise against using the same keys as the server (which are used for server authentication) also for user authentication. The server hostkeys should not be used for anything else other than identifying that particular server. In particular the private key of the server should be well protected.

If it is possible , can you let me know how can I use?

Sure, If you have an existing OpenSSH key pair (private and public key) and these are not the server's hostkeys, here's how to use them from Tectia Client or MFT Events:

  1. Open the Tectia Configuration editor
  2. Under the "User Authentication"->"Keys and Certificates" page select the "Add file" button and select the openSSH key you already have.
  3. Then use the public key authentication wizard to upload the key to the SSH server

Note that public-key authentication needs to be supported and allowed on the server for this to work.
