I'm doing my homework on these things rather than just asking the
questions. (that's a good thing for all of us)
I plan on using the drag and drop method, I have PuTTY from work with
Pi-Star, is that a recommended SSH program?
The majority of the files I see are using rsa versus dsa encryption. I
researched the difference but I'm not sure what's best in my case as a
client or if it really makes a difference.
