I have open ssh RSA public , private key . Is it possible replace pub and private keys provided by tectia server 6.1 with my open ssh rsa keys?
Can I use same public key in Tectia MFT event to use as authentication while trying to set up connection with remote sftp server?
If it is possible , can you let me know how can I use?
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.
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.
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:
Note that public-key authentication needs to be supported and allowed on the server for this to work.
