Hi guys,

I cannot get the Remote System Explorer (RSE) plugin to connect to my Linux server using SSH and authenticating with my private key.

I am using the latest version of Eclipse (Standard):
Version: Luna Release (4.4.0)
Build id: 20140612-0600

I have installed the RSE plugin:
Remote System Explorer End-User Runtime Eclipse TM Project

I have added my private key under: General > Network Connections > SSH2

I still cannot get it to work. I even tried reverting to a previous version of the RSE.

Is there something else I need to configure, has anyone else got this to work?

Thanks in advance,

SSH public key authentication works fine for me using eclipse-cpp-luna-R-win32 on Windows 7 64-bit and an Oracle 1.7.0_45 JVM. I only tried a private key without passphrase.

If you're not using the standard SSH port (22), have a look at

Otherwise, Look at Help > About > Installation Details : View Error Log to check if there's any errors. Under Preferences > General > Network Connections > SSH , specify the correct "SSH Home Directory" and "Private Keys to use". Under the Key Management > Load Existing Key you can check if the keys you specified look valid.
