I just bought DO and I think I have misunderstood the sFTP/SSH integration. Prior to purchasing DO I thought I read that DO used PuTTY for sFTP/SSH connections, but clearly it's not the case.
DO doesn't support key-agent among other things, rendering it quite useless since we can't use certificates etc. Is there a way to make DO use PuTTY in proper way?
Most sFTP programs supports key-agent/Keepass this out-of-the-box, like FileZilla, WinSCP, PuTTY, etc.
Opus uses parts of the PuTTY code for sftp.
This guide explains using ssh certificates with Opus:
SSH: How to log in using key files
Yes, that's the the way we use PuTTY, with Pageant I mean. After reading the thread I got it to work. The problem was that the password entry in the bookmark was empty. I just had to put in a space to make it work.
Is there a roadmap for SSH keys to be directly supported within Opus?
It's on the list for a future version but no timescale yet. For now it is possible to use Pagent.

No worries! Thanks for the info.
Looks like the address will have to be added manually.
Also have a look at SSHFS which, I've got successfully working with Dopus. it has the option of password or key based authentication.
This is a pretty awesome utility that works really well with dopus. it extends the functionality of ftp in that you can mount and browse a remote linux computer as if it is a local hard drive.
