    77Most Windows users do not have X11 installed, which creates some difficulty with the "Login to node" menu option. Flukes has a property that is Windows-specific in the .flukes.properties file, "putty.path". This allows specifying the path to the PuTTY ssh client. It is recommended that Windows users download and install this client, using the full installer provided here: [http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html].

    9 Key format differences - PuTTY versus OpenSSH. The prevailing OS used on virtual or physical nodes in ExoGENI is Linux, which expects SSH keys in OpenSSH format. PuTTY has its own format, which differs from that of OpenSSH. The solution is to use the PuTTYGen tool included in the PuTTY installation to generate keys for use with ExoGENI. Directions on how to do so are [wiki:flukes_on_windows here.]
