  • Are you sure? What version of openssh/ssh are you using? I've been able to make public keys work (openssh - client, ssh - server) once some time ago.

    • Openssh 3.1 (latest).

      It's the v2 public keys that aren't compatible. See man ssh-keygen for the -e option.
      • I misunderstood you. I though you haven't been able to get public key work at all.

        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.
