Hi Currently we are migrating our SSH solution to Tectia.

We are using certificate authentication from client to server.

Now I have exported and re-import certificate to Tectia server and tectia client.

Then I tried to access from F-Secure client (old client), I managed to login. But when I tried to login from Tectia client, it showed me unable to authenticate me. Server is running Tectia Server and same with Tectia Client.

Went to event viewer, found: 411 Login_failure, Username: sdv0110, Reason: No more auth methods available, Src: dbsvsg015.dbss.local, Src IP:, Dst IFace: listener, Dst IP:, Src Port: 59669, Dst Port: 22, "Authentication failed, Remote Disconnect", Session-Id: 25

Any idea whether Tectia Client can support other SSH2 keys?

The authentication fails because Tectia client is unable to read F-Secure SSH generated keys because those keys are in proprietary format. You can convert F-Secure SSH keys to SecSh format using F-Secure's ssh-keygen2 tool with switch -H and the import to Tectia client.

Before conversion set the passphrase of the private key to empty. You can change it back using Tectia client.
