Convert PuTTY key into SSH (and use command line SSH instead of PuTTY)

Well,

PuTTY is tool for those who do not like or unable to use raw SSH. What to do if you would like to use plain old SSH?

Install the “putty” package on your Fedora Linux (or other Linux)
yum install putty

It also will install “puttygen” utility, you make check it:
# which puttygen
/usr/bin/puttygen

Now just run:
puttygen Key_putty.ppk -o Key.ssh -O private-openssh

And now you may run:
ssh user@hostname.com -i Key.ssh

Voila!
