sftp from UNIX to Windows ( Vshell )

Hello,

We are currently facing some issues with sftp process from UNIX system to a Windows m/c ( having VShell installed).

Though we have the public key installed on Windows m/c under C:\Program Files(86)\VShell\PublicKey\, it is still asking for us to enter the password while issuing sftp from our UNIX m/c.

Could you please help me on this?

Thanks

This is VMS and we may not be able to come to an answer here as quickly as they would in Unix or Windows land.

One suggestion - is the key in the correct format? There are two formats - OpenSSH and RFC 4716

Yes, you are in the wrong forum, but the
usual advice in such a case is to use SSH
(which is a bit simpler) instead of SFTP for
testing, and to add "-v" to the SSH (or SFTP)
command, so you can see what's happening.
Also, most SSH/SFTP servers log errors in a
file somewhere, so (finding and) reading that
error log may tell you something, too.
