Hi! When I try to connect with Cyberduck to my server thru SFTP and using Public Key authorization I always get this error: "The key format is not a supported format". What's wrong with the file? It works ok under WinSCP for example...

Build of Cyberduck is 2929

Please help!

The key must be DSS or RSA. Refer to ticket #334.

I use DSA. As I know it is that the same as DSS. So using another build doesn't help me.

Are you using the public or private key file? Attempting to use the public key will result in this error message.
