How to Use WinSCP to Log In to a Node in Key Pair Authentication Mode in FusionStorage

1. Check whether WinSCP on the local PC has been used to log in to a node in key pair authentication mode.
? If yes, go to Step 4.
? If no or you cannot confirm, go to Step 2.
2. Run WinSCP and specify the following information about the target node:
? IP address and the SSH port number (default value: 22).
? Username for the SSH login. For example, the username for logging in to a FusionSphere OpenStack node is fsp.
? Private key certificate. Select the prepared local private key certificate file.
The file name extension of the private key certificate is *.ppk.

3. To facilitate subsequent access, click Save and set the session name in the displayed dialog box.
After this step, go to Step 5.
4. In the navigation tree in the left pane, choose Session > Stored sessions and select the saved session.
5. Click Login.
If the in-use private key certificate is an encrypted certificate, the Key passphrase window is displayed when a session is setup. In this case, enter the certificate password.
