I'm trying to host a Minecraft server on a Openshift DIY gear and my friend wants to join.
I have a SSH key for him, and when I run this in cmd like the documentation says:
"C:\Users\~Jacob\Desktop\putty.exe" -ssh -i "C:\Users\~Jacob\Documents\ssh.ppk" -N -L 127.5.90.1:25565:127.5.90.1:25565 firstname.lastname@example.org
It says in PuTTY that it is authenticating and gets stuck at "authenticating key". I can type and stuff but the commands don't execute. I had to add the extra commands from the original documentation because ssh alone doesn't work and without mentioning the .ppk file it will not attempt to connect, as the server will refuse to connect.
Here is the documentation:
The part where you see "add friends" I followed. I guess since the tutorial is outdated the commands broke or something but I know there is a way without rhc tools and git installed because I can access my server via SSH without those, its just when I try tunneling using the command line is the issue. I just don't want other people having full access to my other projects also on the host, and also for them having to download all that stuff is a pian.
Anyone know what to do in my situation?
