Note that my hosting company allows ssh/sftp access, but does not allow ftp and has no webdav support. Hence my need for sftp.
In any case, I am unable to open any files in oXygen via sftp.
If I attempt to browse a URL, I get the usual ssh warning about key authenticity, after which I select OK to continue connecting. There is a bit of network activity. then the connection fails and oXygen displays "Error: Auth fail" in the browser area of the "Open using FTP/SFTP..." window. Nothing is displayed in the system console.
Now, if I attempt to open using a direct URL, I OK the key warning, and oXygen displays a failed auth dialog. The URL I'm using follows the basic format here:
Code: Select all
Could some person who is able to use this feature take pity on me and walk me through the steps you use to open a remote file via sftp?
As I noted early in this message, I use many different editors to do this all the time, so I'm very familiar with how it should work. BBEdit and others work fine.
