how to convert you putty key to linux use putty agent to login to your linux box, and now you wish you could use the same key within linux? Not a problem. right click on the private key, choose edit, then choose "export" save the file somewhere (anywhere), then eventually copy it over to your ~/.ssh/identity file [may need to change permissions on said file so that it's not readable by anyone]. Voila.
