hello dear buddies
after a harddisk crash i have to restore all the stuff
- pgp things for enigmail
- openSSH-things for the SFTP-protocol - that filezilla uses to connect servers
and so on and so forth
my problem: i have messed up the crypted files with the passphrases and things like that.
well i have no glue where i find the necessary files that are needed for FileZilla
i tried several files -
- securering and a bunch of others
but i guess that they are private and public keys for the pgp- (enigmail).
when i try to import such files, the protocoll in Filezilla says _ no appropiate file - you need a file with a OpenSSH-formate
I did the following: i run a search with grep to find such files on the machine ?
What happened i found out files that begin with this phrase
"BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY".
But what makes me wonder is the fact that the FileZilla waits for XML-files. So i am completely lost - i have no files like that...
what is wrong here!? What do i have to do now!?
look forward to hear from you
i found out them by using the powerful grep command [note this is very very powerful] Well i runned this one here
grep -R 'BEGIN .* PRIVATE KEY' /*
i found out several files. Algorithm might differ though.
Well - so far so good. .- But - i am lost. I do not have a xml-file - but the fileZilla- does wait on a xml-file!? What can i do here!?
help me plz plz...
