FileZilla don't connect by SSH becouse of asking password

  • Posted September 23, 2014

Please, tell me, what should I do? The SSH works OK: I can connect with PuTTY without asking password. The key works well. But when I try to connect with FileZilla (I’ve followed all the steps from here:, it asks me for a password and so I couldn’t connect. If I left the password field empty FileZilla asks me for the password again.
