When calling load public key to load the public key ,key doesn't get loaded and we get Algorithm:65535 which according to doc is unspecified algorithm.
But the algorithm used in the public key is rsa-ssh ,not sure what the problem is. Trying to connect to Sftp server using putty and the same public key we have no issues but using the load public key method in ELDOS TElSSHKey it fails.

Thank you for contacting us.

Have you set the license key for SecureBlackbox (by calling SetLicenseKey method) before loading the SSH key?

Sincerely yours

yes we call SBUtils.__Global.SetLicenseKey,I would have to further clarify that I could make it work for other keys that use rsa-ssh,it's just a particular set of keys that fails with ELDOS. Thanks for the quick response.

EldoS is a company, it doesn't deal with keys.

As for your particular key -- as it is public, you can send it to us for checking. I have created a support ticket in our HelpDesk for you. You are welcome to post the key to the ticket. HelpDesk is confidential so the key won't be exposed to public.

Sincerely yours
Eugene Mayevski
