How do I configure SSH authentication?




How do I configure SSH authentication? Our PRTG runs on Windows 2008 R2, but we want to monitor a Linux Web server which only allows login from /etc/.ssh/known_hosts. Where do I make or get the required information to authenticate. Until now, there are two entries in /etc/.ssh/known_hosts ssh-rsa VTZUBHTBUHNIJFTUN.... ssh-rsa SAWERJIF....

What do I need to enter there to allow access from the PRTG-Server?


known-hosts ssh windows

I'm afraid this is not supported by PRTGs SSH-Sensors in the moment.
