I remotely connect to virtual Linux box as follows: From my windows 10 computer, I invoke WinSCP. From WinSCP, I open puTTy terminal.
Then, I can clone source code from servers such as GitLab and GitHub.
What protocol am I using to connect to GitLab. Is it SSH?
From puTTy terminal, I entered following command to see if existing ssh keys are present:
$ ls -al ~/.ssh
I can connect to GitLab and clone source code but there are no ssh keys in my home directory? How is it possible to connect to remote servers without ssh keys?
