Generating an SSH Key on Windows - using PuTTY Gen:

  • Set the Parameters by selecting the SSH-2 RSA radio button, and enter 2048 for the number of bits. Click Generate and the Key generation will begin.
  • When the Key generation is complete, save the Private part of your key on your local computer using the Save Private Key button. Do not assign a passphrase to this key for use with your AST account. Make sure you save this key in a secure location and make a note of where you save it (you will need to know this in a moment). It is not necessary to save the Public part of your key, but you may do so if you wish.
  • Back in the PuTTY Gen window, the public key text appears in the upper pane on the window - select all of it and copy it to your clipboard with Ctrl-C.
  • Now, you can enroll your public key in CaptionSync. Log in to your CaptionSync account and go to Settings -> SSH Keys -> Add Another Key. Paste the key from your clipboard into the new key window; add a description to Note that will allow you to later identify the key. Click Add Key. You may enroll as many keys as you need in your CaptionSync account and enable/disable them as you need.

Generating an SSH Key on Windows - using Git:

  • Download Git, run the Git.exe file and install the app. When you get to the “Adjusting your PATH variable environment” screen, choose Use Git Bash only. Next, on the “Configuring the line ending conversions” screen, choose Checkout as-is, commit as-is. Then proceed with the installation.
  • On the Start Menu of your computer, select Git -> Git GUI. To generate a new public-private key pair, open the Help menu and select Show SSH Key.
  • Open your Windows Explorer to check if the ./ssh directory already exists in your pc. Following this path should direct you there: C:\Users\[your user name]\.ssh (replace [your user name] with your user name).
  • Then go back to the Git window and click Generate Key. Do not assign a passphrase to this key, so when asked to enter a new passphrase just press OK.
  • A new public key will show on the Git window. To copy the public key, click Copy to Clipboard:
