RE: [dsdp-tm-dev] Question

what name did you use for saving the private key?
On the first tab of the SSH2 Preference page, there is a list
of the private key names it will try (default: id_rsa,id_dsa)
The private key that you saved must be one of these.
You might need to quit & restart Eclipse after you changed
the private keys, to ensure that RSE reloads them.
You could try saving the private key without passphrase
(you can load the key and save again with passphrase
later if you want).
Perhaps it helps if you send me screenshots of your
SSH2 Preferences.

Hey Martin:
I didn't quite get it:
- generated RSA key
- saved private key locally with password
- uploaded public key on remote linux server
- trying to login it still prompts me for password

Hello Yaron,
the SSH Key Management is set up through the Prefs page:
   Preferences > General > Network Connections > SSH2
You can set up your SSH homedir, generate a private key,
and even export the public part of it to the remote host.
When everything is set up, you can log in without password
from RSE (just keep your password empty and store it).
The page is also used by the CVS SSH2 connection.
There is also a help page for it:

Hi all.


Here’s a question posted on our forum , can you please assist ?:

“Does anybody know a solution for using public-key authentication for
the Remote System Explorer. Something similar to the Pageant utility,
that we are using with PuTTY and WinSCP.

Using public-key authentication gives you the convenience of being able
to open multiple SSH sessions without having to type a passphrase every
time, but also gives you the security benefit of never storing a
password or a decrypted private key on disk.

I believe there is a Remote System Explorer forum somewhere and I could
ask this question there, but I am lazy at this hour and I feel more at
home here in this group.
