When adding a Public Key Auth key,
To the Shell Server it makes no difference to the connection I can merely connect from any machine as long as the username and password are correct. I have tried everything to get this to work. I can not find any documentation on your website regarding this feature.
How can I ensure that this is working.
Thanks for your help in advance

When you set up public key authentication, it does not prevent you from logging in using a password. Rather, it allows you the option to also connect using your key instead of a password.

We have already tried this also. No keypairs work at all-we have tried RSA and DSA of differing lengths and none of them work.We have used both Bitvise Tunnelier and WSFTPpro and none of them allow access with exchanging keys. The logs merely state that the password is incorrect. Why is the renodocumentation on this on this site or your othersite.?
There is also no way of knowing if it actually doing anything-you can putarandom text file in as the SSH key and the application does not even complain.There is no feedback at all. What do you suggest?
Thanks

Assuming that you are pointing to a valid public key file for the account, I would look at how you generate the key pairs. The public key must be in openssh format.
What tool are you using to generate the key pair?
Yes, the error reporting needs to be improved for handling pub key authentication. The documentation is being updated and will be released along with the final release at the end of April.

I actually had the same problem, resolved it by using the configuration in the tool instead of using the web gui for pointing to my public key file

Same deal, problem with the key exchange. Key is in OpenSSH format.

04/20/2012 01:47:16 PM: [NOTE] SFTP Connection (167.10.251.64) logged into account tatem (Auth: PublicKey -> C:\Authentication\SSH\Tatem\tatem-caldoj-openssh.pub)
04/20/2012 01:47:16 PM: [FAIL] An error occured during key exchange Serv auth req
04/20/2012 01:47:16 PM: [NOTE] Connection from 167.10.251.64 disconnected

Set up via web admin, I'll try the server-side config.
