The public keys that openssh generates aren't compatible with those accepted by commercial ssh. This took us quite some time to figure out. I wonder what the reason for this is.

As for you question about reason for having two incompatible formats. IIRC openssh cannot have its public keys in same format as comercial ssh because it requires using patented algorithms or something like this. One big difference between openssh and comercial implimintations is that openssh uses only "free" algorithms which are not subject of any patent of other similar restrictions.
