1/ I have generated on Linux a key pair with ssh-keygen and a path-phrase.
2/ on windows 10 , I copied my private key 'id_rsa' and try to use it with FileZilla : he wants to convert it to .ppk (by the way why ???) , I say yes and ask my secret : I have only the path phrase : I type it and I get the error message on my french PC :

"impossible d'obtenir une réponse de fzputtygen"

(the program fzputtygen.exe is right under the Filezilla installed dir)
and a id_rsa.ppk file at 0kB !
and impossible to transfert my files with that Filezilla !
