I can’t login to my Mac with SSH!
- The issue is that your Mac isn’t configured to receive passwords non-interactively.
Open Terminal on your Mac. From the command prompt:
$ sudo vim /private/etc/sshd_config
# In this file make sure that ”PasswordAuthentication” is set to ”yes”
How to set up SSH keys ?
- Check the user guide in app.
Cloning from git Error: Failed to authenticate SSH session: Unable to extract public key from private key
You should be using more compatible PEM format, not the newer OpenSSH format.
Specifically Mac OSX Mojave’s ssh-keygen will generate newer style OpenSSH key pairs by default. However, these keys may not be backwards compatible.
Generating SSH Key
Open your terminal on Mac/pc.
Use one of the following commands. This will generate proper id_rsa and id_rsa.pub keys.
ssh-keygen -m PEM -t rsa -b 4096
ssh-keygen -m PEM -t rsa -b 4096 -C ”firstname.lastname@example.org”
How can I open the terminal ?
- 1. Open created SFTP/SSH connection from main view.
- 2. Press ”+” sign on top right.
- 3. Choose terminal.
