Instructions for setting up SSH on windows are incomplete

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Set up SSH for Git

After following the setup instructions for windows step by step, when running

ssh -v git@bitbucket.org

I still get the following error:

debug1: key_load_public: No such file or directory
debug1: identity file /c/Users/<user name>/.ssh/id_rsa-cert type -1

In the end resulting in a permission denied notice.

It would be great if this article would address this issue.

Hi
It seems that you have access identification issue. Here is the way to solve this error:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/32910928/ssh-keygen-no-such-file-or-directory 

Actually my question refers specifically to the "no such file" notification of the -cert file. In the mean time I found out that this can be ignored in most cases.

However, it is confusing when your access is denied by the server and you don't know what causes it yet, since the reason given for denied access is not very verbose :cheeky:

Perhaps it is a good idea to add to the instructions that the cert file is not needed for authentication as long as you don't have a signed key.
