I'm trying to use the Target Management Terminal view to create an SSH connection with username/password. I'm running into an NPE when I happen to have a PKCE#8 formatted ~/.ssh/id_rsa private key, even though I only want to use username/password to make the connection. The only way I can make the connection work is to delete my id_rsa file, which I don't want to do.

I posted bug reports with eclipse and with jsch, since it seems like there should be fixes in both projects.

I can't post the JSCH bug report link. See the eclipse report comment for a link to the JSCH report.

Many thanks for the report, and diligent research !

I think the issue is in JSch, but there is a workaround. See my comment on .
