MobaXTerm – WARNING: UNPROTECTED PRIVATE KEY FILE!

Preston Garrison 0 Comments

MobaXterm and Cygwin seem to have a bug if you put a key file into your .ssh directory.  No matter what I tried I could not get it to stop printing the error.  After extensive testing and googling, I finally found a solution.

 

chgrp -Rv Users ~/.ssh/* 
chmod -vR 600 ~/.ssh/id_rsa
