[Micronet] Cyberduck on Mac won't prompt for public key passphrase

Jan Pardoe
Hi, all.

I'm setting up Cyberduck on a Mac to use for sftp with a unix host.  We've created a public key on the Mac with ssh-keygen and protected it with a passphrase.  A test with ssh-add works as expected.  In Cyberduck, we set up the connection with protocol sftp, public key authentication using ~/.ssh/id_rsa.  When we try to connect, it never asks for the passphrase and eventually the connection times out.

I haven't used Cyberduck before, but their documentation says this should work and it should prompt for a passphrase.  Any idea what's wrong?

Thanks.

Jan

This Cyberduck help doc:

https://trac.cyberduck.io/wiki/help/en/howto/sftp

could be interpreted as suggesting that it might also be necessary to set up ~/.ssh/config to point to the id_rsa file, either when connecting to a specific set of hosts, or with a wildcard for all connections. Worth trying, at any rate, if you haven't already experimented with this?
