I was just informed that there is some kind of network device sitting in front of the firewall, intercepting traffic. I will get that resolved first and then try rancid again, so this troubleshooting is temporarily on hold. Thanks for the suggestions, though.

well, it seems to be in the wrong format; given the error, probably PKCS.

move it aside, and

        % ssh-keygen -t rsa
