Logging in from SSH2 PuTTY

Dear Conserver Users,

I am using Conserver 7.2.7 to monitor the consoles of 60 Unix servers and am 
very pleased with it's performance and features.

I am hardening the Conserver Unix host and requiring SSH2 logins.  Most 
administrators are using PuTTY, a freeware terminal emulator with SSH2 

When a user logs in with password authentication and puts in their password 
after the "console xxxxx" command, all works well.

When a user attempts to use public key encryption, connects, and types in 
their passphrase, they get a "Sorry." message.

I am trying to automate the logon process by having PuTTY called with 
arguments from a web page.  Depending on which link they click for the 
particular host they want to console to, PuTTY is called and the "console 
xxxxx" command is entered automatically by PuTTY.  Problem is, the "Sorry." 
message comes back.

Bryan, I know that with my version of Conserver on HP/UX 11.0 that system 
passwords are limitted to 8 characters in order to work with Conserver.  Do 
you have any ideas?

Thanks for a such a useful application!
