So I've gone ahead and generated a Key using Puttygen. From there I've also done the following steps:
- Generated a Key
- Copied the Public Key string.
- Logged onto the pi through SCP
- Copied the public Key string into authorized keys.
- tried logging into the Pi from a seperate Pi using the Private key.
ssh -i Open_Sesame_Key.ppk firstname.lastname@example.org
I am getting the following verbose output:

There was no passphrase entered in the puttygen field but yet it claiming I have an incorrect passphrase where i never even set one up. The passphrase field was blank so what would cause this to be requesting a passphrase?
