Could be a problem in your IDE?
Any logs?
Do you have an SSH key assigned to the server?

  • I think the problem might be specifically between Sublime and Ubuntu. It seems that the Sublime sftp plugin is not compatible with Ubuntu. Does this sound like it might make sense?

    So yes, I agree that this might fall under “problem in [the] IDE.

    No logs. Not sure if your referring to something I could generate and post to help track down the problem. If so, let me know how to get them.

    There is an SSH key assigned to the server.

    Thank you for your help.
