The User Keys dialog box allows you to create and manage user keys. You can open it by clicking User Key Manager on the Tools menu.
A user key is comprised of two keys, a public key and a private key. The public key is registered to the remote server, and the private key is saved locally for Xftp. When the public key authentication is in progress, the public key is sent to the server. If it is found on the server, the connection will be allowed.
You can create a user key with the User Key Generation Wizard provided by Xftp or the key generation tool on the remote server. When the user key is created on the server, you should get the private key from the server and import it on the User Keys dialog box . When the user key is created on Xftp, you should register the public key to the remote server. Transferring a private key over the network is not recommended and it is more secure to create it on Xftp and register the public key to the server.Import
