Can the FTP/SSH client use the .ssh/config file for hostnames and identities and all those details? or at least import information from there? I wanted to use the keys and such as defined in that for convenience otherwise I have to define it in two places. one for the ssh terminal use and one for the ftp use
Unable to use this key file (OpenSSH SSH-2 private key (old PEM format)) Unable to use key file (OpenSSH SSH-2 private key (new format)) <using ppk> Offered public key Server refused our key Trying Pageant key #0 Server refused our key Trying Pageant key #1 Server refused our key Trying Pageant key #2 Server refused our key Trying Pageant key #3 Server refused our key Disconnected: No supported authentication methods available (server sent: publickey)
which key file format do you accept? I am not sure why the sftp connections are failing. I am able to connect using winscp but not dopus. I wanted to use dopus's tools and thus was trying to connect.
Not as far as I'm aware.
PuttyGen can make/convert keys in the correct format. With newer versions, set PPK file version to 2 in its options:
I tried with the ppk filie as well as you can see from my previous answer, but it doesn't work. I am more surprised by why puttyagent doesn't work while winscp using the same works. Any Ideas?
"Server refused our key" and "No supported authentication methods available" imply the key is being used, but the server rejected it.
The server may be configured to only allow newer encryption modes which we don't support yet. That'll come in the future when we replace the SFTP code with a new library. Don't have an ETA on that yet though, as we need to finish other work first, but it's likely the next big piece of work we start.
