  1. Solved Create file called "authorized_keys" in this directory and paste into it the contents of a public key from a keypair To do this, you must have created a public and private key-pair. Use the following steps to do this: From command line (telnet / putty) 1. Type "ssh-keygen -t rsa -f /boot/config/plugins/ssh/<USERNAME>/.ssh/id_rsa" NB. replace "<USERNAME>" with the name of the user. 2. When prompted, type a passphrase if you wish for additional security for the private key. Press enter if not for no passphrase 3. Create a copy the public key into the same location and call it "authorized_keys". eg. cp /boot/config/plugins/ssh/<USERNAME>/.ssh/id_rsa.pub /boot/config/plugins/ssh/<USERNAME>/.ssh/authorized_keys Verify everything has been created correctly. Upon restarting SSH, the plug-in will look for (and find) authorized_keys and copy this file to the users home directory. eg. /home/someuser/.ssh/authorized_keys ---------------------------------------------------------- The private part of the key is "id_rsa". You must take this to the system you intend to connect *from*. If you intend to use Putty to connect, then you *MUST* first convert the private key from standard OpenSSH format to Putty compatible format. A copy of PUTTYGEN for UnRAID has been included. To convert the private key, follow these steps: From command line (telnet / putty): 1. Type "/usr/bin/puttygen /boot/config/plugins/ssh/<USERNAME>/.ssh/id_rsa -o /boot/config/plugins/ssh/<USERNAME>/.ssh/id_rsa.ppk 2. In Putty, create an entry to your UnRAID server and in "Connection -> SSH -> Auth" section of Putty, browse for the file you created (id_rsa.ppk). and then using user@ipaddress:/path/to/folder in Vorta
