login-procedure: Status: skip the non existing key file -> connected finally

#1 Post by openSuseman » 2020-03-19 17:57

hi there good day


the topic of today: login-procedure: Status: skip the non existing key file -> connected finally

well i am a long term user - and ia am vey very glad to have filetzilla.

at the moment i am setting up a new machine .- I saved the filetzilla xml-file to a stick

and furtermore i have had a closer look at the protocoll - of the filetzilla on my office desktop machiene where filezilla still runs well.
The login protocoll notes the following - among others....

Code: Select all

Status: skip the non existing key file
"E:\20190717_of\_user_\___\putty_key_\private_key.ppk"
Status:	Connected to www2.example.com

well that is very very interesting - i wonder why this is so.

#questions: do i have some login process that makes it not (!) necsarry to refer to a ppk-file!?
i remember that we have different procedures and that there different methods of authentification exist -can you clear up some things here!`?

guess that i need some more overview on the optons we have with FileZilla.

look forward to hear from you

regards
openSuse man

If a key file is configured, the respective GUI parts verify and require that the configured keys exists. Due to TOCTTOU, the parts where a keyfile is eventually used, can tolerate a file that cannot be loaded.
