Q1230040: I want to use Private Key File authentication. What private key file file format is supported by ActiveXperts?
The Private Key File should be PuTTY compatible. PuTTY is a free and open-source terminal emulator, and very popular under Windows. This means that your Linux private key file should be converted to a PuTTY compatible format using the PuttyGen.exe utility. Download PuttyGen.exe from the PuTTY web site. After conversion, you can use it in ActiveXperts. Click here for more information.

Q1230020: I get the following error when rusing SSH: "22480 Failed to create temporary file". I'm using your ASP sample. What's wrong?
The SSH component needs read/write access to a temporary folder. There will be three temp files written to it, indicated by the following three undocumented properties: sysTmpFileRes sysTmpFileOut sysTmpFileErr Make sure that the anonymous ASP user has read/write access to the directory where the files will be written. You can even change the paths for the above three properties and assign different file locations.

Q1230010: Why are remote sessions not closed ?
This can happen when the command started is a background process which keeps current stdout or stderr open. The solution is to redirect stdout and stderr. Click here for more information. The other possibility is that you are running a version of OpenSSH which is older than 4.9. These versions contain a bug which causes it to never close sessions for root users. More information in the release notes for version 4.9 under (bz#926).
