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
Frankly, this may be a combination of one of the worst designed dialogs I've ever seen (the open URL window) and one or more actual bugs (the seeming inability to store accepted ssh keys).
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.
