Question

SFTP setup on Transmit (Mac)

  • Posted December 3, 2013

I have an existing ssh key which I’m trying to use with the Transmit client, which works similarly on other servers. I have checked various articles including the Filezilla example but I’m getting rejected at attempted login. Please confirm I have the settings wright

Protocol: SFTP Host: 198.199.72.177 (DNS ip address - also tried host.iq4news.com) user: root PW: None SSH Key: ~/.ssh/id_rsa Port: 22

So what am I doing wrong please?

I found out today that Transmit (still) has difficulty dealing with password-encrypted keys.

In this case you need to add the key you created to your computer’s keychain using ssh-add -K path/to/.ssh/key-name .

You then set up your SFTP connection in Transmit with the IP/URL and your user name, but do not specify a password or choose a key file. Save. Connect.
