For some git servers you will need to provide the host with a Public SSH Key. Below are the instructions for generating these keys.

On Linux and MacOS X

  • ssh-keygen - you can probably run it as "ssh-keygen -t dsa" and the public key will be in a file called something like id_des.pub (its reply will tell you).

On Windows

  • PuTTYgen - choose SSH2 DSA and most Linux-based servers will want the "Public key for pasting into authorized_keys file" (most use openssh).
