On Ubuntu, I have a problem to establish a connection to redis server using SSH tunnel and SSH key with Redis Desktop Manager (RDM).
What are the symptoms?
- I can connect to the server where redis is running using "plain"
- other utilities which use either the SSH agent or keys in
.sshcan connect to this server and create tunnels (e.g. DB apps),
- I can connect with RDM to redis servers using SSH tunnel and password (so the question is not a duplicate of Unable to establish an SSH tunnel using Redis Desktop Manager); but this is not a perfect solutions, because I would rather use private/public keys authorization,
- I cannot convert keys in
.sshto a working PEM format required by RDM: any PEM files I've generated using different methods I googled are rejected by RDM with a message
Connection: Disconnect on error: SSH Connection error(Authentication Error): Unable to extract public key from private key file: Unable to open private key file,
- I tried entering either a path to
~/.ssh/id_rsa) or just a path to a directory where my private key is stored (
So, does anyone have an idea how to properly convert my SSH keys to a PEM format RDM needs and accepts?
openssl pkey -in ~/.ssh/my_key.pem -text.... And what format does the key say it's in... Do post this result
grep BEGIN ~/.ssh/my_key.pem
-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
