Smile all set...thanks

to resolve this issue I had to create a .pfx file using the users privatekey file and the signed certificate from the CA.

openssl pkcs12 -export -out certificate.pfx -inkey privateKey.key -in certificate.crt -certfile CACert.crt

the -certfile is optional.

Openssl will prompt for an export phrase. This will be used when importing the resulting certificate.pfx into the windows box.

I copied the file certificate.pfx to my windows box right mouse button clicked it and selected import(entered pass phrase). I then followed your directions from there and I successfully logged in to my SSH server.

- Click Next, select Place all certificates in the following

- Click the Browse button

- Select Personal

- Rejoice and click OK because the import was successful

- Open SecureCRT's Session Options / Connection / SSH2

- Select PublicKey and press the Properties button

- Select Use personal store certificate (CAPI)

excellent support and excellent product. Thanks Mike!!!
