using key AND password

#1 Post by hfruchtl » 2020-06-05 16:42

A server I need to connect to requires bots an ssh key and a password. FileZilla seems to only be able to do one or the other. A recent post on this forum said that this would be possible with Pageant, but didn't elaborate how it would be done in practice.

You need to set your key in the global FileZilla settings (under the Edit menu), and the password in the Site Manager. The key will then be tried in addition to the password.

There's one caveat, however. The key will be tried against every SFTP server, do, if you have more than one, take this into account.
