Most of the cloud server like Amazon provide PEM key file to access server  . If we have a windows machine , so we can not connect  to the server through pem file, we need  PPK File format to connect to the server.

Here we are using client to connect Amazon linux Server , so we need PPK file to connect server.

(1)    Download PuTTY Key Generator software from the follow location.
