Wind, fire, all that kind of thing!
On Linux you can simply store a server's public key in your
known_hosts file to avoid being prompted for host key verification. However, PuTTY stores server public keys in a different format, so you can't simply import a public key into the Windows registry and be done with it. You can convert
known_hosts files to .reg file format with this script from the PuTTY homepage, but unfortunately the script doesn't account for entries that use a non-default port:
[a.b.c.d]:2222 ssh-rsa AAAA...
This patch fixes the issue. You can also download an already patched version of the script.
Update: The official version of
kh2reg.py has been updated.
