Convert pem to ppk

In this article, we will see how we can convert pem to ppk easily with few clicks. Whenever we create an AWS EC2 machine and want to access it by putty from a windows laptop or desktop. We need to convert our pem key to ppk key so that putty can use that private key and allow it to connect. There many ways to convert pem to ppk. I really like PuTTyGen because it’s easy and straight forward.

See the full article from here :https://thedbadmin.com/convert-pem-to-ppk/

Prerequisites
You need putty installed on your windows system. You can see my following post for putty installation.

How to Install PuTTy on Window

1. Go to the Windows search option and look for β€˜PuttyGenβ€˜ and open it.

2. Got to β€˜Conversionsβ€˜ and β€˜Import keyβ€˜

3. Now click β€˜Save private keyβ€˜ and save the file in ppk format.

And click β€˜Yes’

4. Give some meaningful name to the file.

5. Once you have ppk private key file load into to β€˜putty / Connection/ SSH / Auth’ and give the path of ppk file.

6. Give the AWS s3 endpoint name or public IP in β€˜PuTTy / Session / Logging’ and you are done !!!
