SSH private key not working for DSA 4096 and 2048 on Serv-U version in 15.1.2 and 15.1.3


Serv-U version 15.x

  • Windows Vista/7/8, Server 2008/2012 - C:\ProgramData\RhinoSoft\Serv-U (Folder is Hidden in Windows by default)
  • Windows 2000/XP, Server 2000/2003 - C:\Program Files\RhinoSoft\Serv-U
  • Linux - /usr/local/Serv-U


Known bug using 15.1.2 and


DSA with key length 1024 is working for now when generating private key on Serv-U.

May also create or generate private key using third party application like PuttyGen.
