    GTI - Adding Key Pair - Private Key Problem

    DavHio

      Hello all,

       

      Im currently setting up a GTI Proxy Appliance test environment for a customer.

       

      Refering to the Product Guide McAfee Global Threat Intelligence Proxy 2.0 Patch 2

       

      The Artemis test file has been used and tests were successful on the test clients with Artemis level "Low" . The proxy connectivity is ok with Status: NOERROR

       

      Im at the chapter Set up access to proxy appliance using authentication keys and Set up SHH using a new public/private key pair.

      With Putty, I have created the keys using the ssh-keygen command on the proxy appliance command. I copied the files from /acs/gtip/.ssh directory to a local directory using WinSCP.

      I confirmed that the locally copied Public key is identical to whats stored in the authorized_keys file.

       

      In ePO, I try to add the Key Pairs Menu - System - GTI Proxy Appliance Management - Action - Manage Keys - Add New Key Pair.

      I name the Key Name and browse to the Private and the Public key files that I stored on my local drive.

       

      When clicking OK I get the error message saying Private key is incorrect. Please validate the private key file and upload again.

      Since its the private key it has no reference else then its formatting.

       

      It seem to be formatted correctly with line breaks and no character conversion errors.
