SFTP no working with PHPSTORM

August 31, 2014 6.8k views

Hello, I have a droplet with SSH key.
My SSH and SFTP access work perfectly with Mac OSX Terminal and Transmit.

But for some reason SFTP does not work with PHPSTORM :

Connection to 'ip_address' failed
SSH_MSG_DISCONNECT: 2 Too many authentication failures for root

Just regenerate with correct format:

-Open your private key in PuTTYGen
-Top menu “Conversions”->”Export OpenSSH key”.
-Save the new OpenSSH key when prompted.
-Restart machine maybe needed (in my case).

Thanks @cosminflo. Had the same issue issue using Laravel Homestead. Simply retyped my SSH password and hit Apply and BOOM!!!! Fixed :-)
