Support Cygwin OpenSSH
Sourcetree by Atlassian allows the possibility for using OpenSSH or Plink.
I use OpenSSH from gitbash (mingw64) under windows with rsa private keys for connect to remote linux hosts. But Heidi support only putty for tunnelling as ssh client, and Puttu support self owned keys - .ppk. And I want use existing keys in Heidi for connect to mysql servers on my hosts.
I solve this issue. Do next steps:
1. Download puttygen.exe (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html)
2. Run it.
3. Choose "Conversions" -> "Import Key", and load your id_rsa (openSSH private key).
4. Click "Save private key", type filename as "id_rsa.ppk", for example.
5. Set in Heidi connection wizard SSH-tunnel this file as private key.
6. Connect and work =)
