I'm working on setting up key authentication to transfer a file from
my client to a server. I'm running OpenSSH_4.1 on HPUX 1.11 and the
server is running GlobalSCAPE Secure FTP Server (v. 3.1) on windows
I'm guessing.

The server admin sent me there key and I used a cat cmd to add it to
the Authorized_keys file in the ~/.ssh dir.

I keep receiving the following error. I'm guessing that there is a
problem with the key, I will include some of it also.

I'm out of options. If someone can help me with this one, I'll
definitely owe them a cold one.

Thanks
Richard
