    I have created a public and private certificate using a passphrase through which I am able to ssh from my terminal of Mac.


    I want to access a device through NoMachine using the private certificate.

    Tried steps:

    In configuration, I have opted for key based authentication and I have added the private key.


    NoMachine is asking for username and passphrase but not accepting the passphrase I used to create the private key. Now I am not sure what to do to proceed.



    The NX protocol key authentication should be generated by nxkeygen command, or if it is generated by ssh-keygen, then should be converted in pem format.

    You can convert the existing SSH private key by using this command:

    ssh-keygen -p -m PEM -f path_to_the_key
