How to Convert .Pfx to .Ppkby LaurenKrotosky
A Pfx is a type of extension file. If you have a Pfx file saved on your computer, you may want to convert it to a Ppk file, which is another type of extension file. Converting the Pfx file to a Ppk is a quick and simple process, one you may want to consider if you're using software that is more compatible with Ppk files.
Find the saved Pfx file on your computer. Right-click on the file and choose "Rename" from the window that opens.
Delete the letters "Pfx" from the end of the file name. Type in the letters "Ppk" in place of "Pfx". Ensure there is a period before "Ppk".
Click somewhere on the screen outside the file and it will automatically save. The Pfk file can then be used in applications like PuTTY, a system typically associated with software programs like the SSH, Telnet, rlogin and TCP protocols.
