SFTP with .PPK file

It looks like you are using a SSH private key in PuTTY format (.ppk).
tsNet requires it to be in OpenSSH format.
That is easy to fix though, you can convert the .ppk with PuttyGen.
To do this, open PuttyGen and load the .ppk file. Then select
"Conversions" -> "Export OpenSSH key".
Apart from that, just make sure that your call to tsNetGet includes the
full path of the file you want to download.
Hope that helps,
