How to SSH OCI instance from client side(my pc)

Received Response



I have created an OCI instance using SSH key-pairs which was generated in the cloud shell, I chose to paste the public key to the instance in the initiation phase.

How can I access the instance from my local pc and not from the cloud shell? (When the private key is in the cloud shell VM)

Is it possible to export the private key from the cloud shell to my local computer?

Thank you

I tried to copy the private key to a text file in my local pc and then change the file type to PPK file type, But the file becomes "unrecognized key type" , As the Puttygen load private key option indicates.

Howdy, Stranger!
