Copy the id_rsa.ppk file from your computer to your Nokia E63 phone. Remember the folder where you copied it.
|2.||Download and install s2putty
For the Nokia Symbian S60 3rd Edition phone, download s2putty from here http://s2putty.sourceforge.net/download.html.
Install it on your mobile phone.
|3.||Set up SSH-2 on your mobile phone
On your phone, start up the PuTTY program and configure a connection.
Choose Options -> General -> Enter a profile name.
Username = <your user name on the Linux computer> Do not enter it as user@computer, else you will get an error. Choose Options -> New -> SSH Protocol. Leave the port as 22.
