SFTP public key Authentication user setup

I was recently ask to setup a client to send file to our vshell SFTP server and the client wants to use a public key to authenticate using SSH. On the SFTP server side I'm not sure what else I need to do beside copying the pub key the client send me to the vendyke pub key location. I have added the user as I normally do but I don't see anything else where I need to check or change for this user to use the Pub Key authentication. Am I missing a step here?

Under the Authentication section in vshell the following are selected *password, public key, among a few others.

Thanks

Hi vhc23,

Thanks for the post. This type of issue is typically best handled in email since log files will be needed.

What version of VShell are you using?

The public-key file should be placed in a folder of the same name as the user account connecting to VShell. Did you do this?

we have version 3.8. and yes I place the pub key in the path we set for the vshell public key under the same user name we set for the client.

username = joblow
vshell\publickey\joeblow

Hi vhc23,

It would appear as though you have configured publickey authentication correctly.
