Using SSH private key with SFTP plugin

Post by oscarvady » Wed May 18, 2016 1:44 am

Hello everybody,

I am trying to use SFTP plugin to manage my remote machine. For that I want to use ssh keys.

In the documentation http://codelite.org/LiteEditor/SFTP appears:
" Note that the Password field is optional. If not provided, the SFTP plugin will try to connect either using SSH keys (the one that is stored under ~/.ssh folder) or
via anonymous login."

I put the .ppk in my user/.ssh folder, but when I make test connection... "Interactive Keyboard is not enabled for this server"

Thanks in advanced

Note: I am using Windows 8.

Best regards
Oscar

You should have a file named:
~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub or ~/.ssh/id_dsa.pub (these are the default searched by libssh)

The ppk file is putty generated file, which is not supported by this plugin.

Yes, I used the .pub key renamed to id_rsa.pub into the folder ~/.ssh/ and it works!

Thanks
