Hi Ran, 

The period you see in Creating or Obtaining an SSL Key and Certificate is actually part of the command. 

The full command to run would be: 

scp .

I will update the page to make it clearer.


As you can see i made COPY PASTE didn't work

My apologies Ran, I see that you're using Putty so you're on Windows. 

In this case, you need to use pscp and run it from your machine and not from the server after connecting via Putty. 

Your key file would be under /home/admin on your server.

Here's a good article on How to Transfer Files Using PuTTY.

I hope this helps. 

Dear Support

This doesn't still don't work this time around i make it directly to the VM machine and this is the results, just to let you know that previous Putty was a connection via SSH. i make the guide that you send me still didn't work either.

Now that you have the key on your local computer, the next steps can be found in Configuring HipChat Server
