    77The procedure for creating a PuTTY key to use with ExoGENI is: 
    88 * Launch the PuTTYGen tool; if you do not have it, please download it from here: [http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html] 
    9 [[Image(puttygen1.png, 35%)]] 
    10  
    119 * Click the "Generate" button to create a key; you will need to move your mouse around to create entropy for the creation of the key. 
    12 [[Image(puttygen2.png, 35%)]] 
    13  
    1410 * Copy the contents of the box entitled "Public key for pasting into OpenSSH authorized_keys file:", and save these contents into a new, empty text file. In this example, let us save it into "C:\Users\ExampleUser\.ssh\ExampleUser.pub" 
    15 [[Image(puttygen3.png, 35%)]] 
    16  
    1711 * Click the "Save private key" button, after entering a passphrase for the key (if desired). If you do not enter a passphrase, you will be prompted about whether you are sure you wish to save the key without a passphrase. 
    1812 * Save the private key into the location of your choosing. PuTTY private keys are named with a ".ppk" suffix. In this example, we will save it into "C:\Users\ExampleUser\.ssh\ExampleUser.ppk"
