Using SSH keys on Windows

Posted 2 years ago by Demers94

Hi everyone,

I've just started using Laravel Forge and am struggling with SSH keys on Windows. It works fine on my Macbook, I create the SSH key, add it to Forge and I can login.

On Windows, I'm using PuTTy to generate the SSH key and I've saved it in :


I've also added it to Forge without a problem.

However, when I'm trying to login using the command line, with ssh [email protected], I get this error :

Permission denied (publickey)

What am I doing wrong? Is this the right place to be storing SSH keys on Windows, or should I be using something else (different folder, different filename, etc)

Thanks for the help!
