    Hi... I want to access my WRT54GS with SSH and my Private Key.
    I already took this actions:
    1.) Create a public/private key pair with PuttyGen (SSH-2 RSA - 1024 Bits)

    2.) Saved the Keys (with a Passphrase) on my HDD

    3.) Copy the public key and paste it into the"Authorized Keys" Field.

    4.) Set up Putty to connect to my WRT54GS with the Private key.

    When connecting via Putty, a username prompt shows up. If i type the username "root", the Putty Window closes immedately ... why ?

    Versions: latest Putty and DD-WRT #22 (talismen)
