I need to use another computer to access my ssh server. This is because a recently implemented vpn at my university doesn't work on my current computer and I have lost access to the server.
I ssh via encrypted ssh keys. Can I copy these keys to the new computer (on which the vpn works). I tried copying the
id_rsa.pub files in the
~/.ssh folder but it doesn't recognize the keys and there is no prompt to input a password to decrypt the keys.
EDIT: I can't access the server to generate a new key pair for the new computer and am out of the country so can't physically access it.
