How do I use FileZilla or an SFTP client to connect to EON when the key isn't working?

Most modern clients require an updated key format than the one provided originally by Comma.ai.
To convert your key, run the following command...

Assuming your key is stored at ~/.ssh/openpilot_rsa.
openssl rsa -in ~/.ssh/openpilot_rsa -out ~/.ssh/openpilot_rsa_new

If you want to go the route of trying to create the file yourself - and properly set the permissions for it... here is one that should work for getting into EON with FileZilla / Cyberduck via SFTP.

Original user question in Discord:
@KirkMonster: So how do you get FileZilla to use SFTP with the openpilot_rsa key? Do you need to do some conversion or something to get it into PPK format?
