In PowerShell (Recommended)
Windows added the OpenSSH client to Windows 10 several years ago. You can use PowerShell to ssh to systems with OpenSSH server running
- Open a PowerShell Window
Execute the following command as the user you plan to use for connecting to INCLINE.
You can optionally change the location (you probably do not want to do this) and add password protection.
Your public key is stored by default in C:\Users\username\.ssh\id_ed25519.pub . Provide this key when requesting access to INCLINE.
When a SSH key pair is created two files will be created id_ed25519 and id_ed25519.pub. The file ending in .pub is the public key and must be provided when requesting access to INCLINE. The non .pub file is your private key, treat this like a password and do not share it with anyone.
Be sure to save the private key in a secure location which only you have access to. The PowerShell method does this automatically and is the recommended method for Windows users.
