How to generate a SSH key


After you follow "how to generate a SSH key" make sure the keys are stored in .ssh when you use tortoise to clone a repository, please unclick the following


If you want to use putty key, please do the following A putty key can follow you anywhere without being saved in some .ssh

  1. . Open Puttygen in TortoiseGit (puttygen is another standalone program comes with tortoiseGit)
  2. . Load your private key id_rsa
  3. . Save private key into a .ppk format
  4. . Quit puttygen

Enter this .ppk key when clone a remote github. And it should work.

Make sure the path is the git.exe comes with tortoiseGit. In my case, it is set to a cygwin path which can cause remote to hang up.
