At my work I have to ssh into our development server.
I used my windows partition to provide an ssh which they added to their authentication list. But now that I have my Linux partition up and running I wanted to add that. Now after speaking with them they only want to have my 1 ssh key set on the server so I would have to add that same key to my Ubuntu 16.04 partition.
I've tried bringing the
id_rsa.pub files over and attempting to ssh into the server but to no avail.
I simply copied the id_rsa and id_rsa.pub files to an email and sent to myself and placed in a directory home/keys. I'm sure this is not the correct location to place them but I do not know how to access the ssh directory on ubuntu.
Is there a way to add these files to my ssh directory on Ubuntu? or if that would fix the issue?
I know I can create new ssh keys but that defeats the purpose of what I am trying to do.
Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you.
