View Full Version : [ubuntu] ssh into home server

January 7th, 2010, 09:39 PM
I can ssh into my home server via command line, from the terminal application of Ubuntu 9.10, but not from the Places -> Connect to Server... GUI tool.

The latter produces an error message box with two lines. The first reads "Cannot display location sftp://gabi@my_server_ip" and the second reads "Error reading from unix: Input/output error".

In my old Ubuntu 9.04, both the command line ssh and the "Connect to Server..." GUI way worked fine. The latter had the advantage that my server folders showed up in Nautilus. I liked that.

Does anybody have an idea how to fix this?

Thank you,

I have the exact same problem on my newly installed 10.04 boxes (I get the same error in both directions between the boxes).

Please, has anyone found the workaround / Fix for this?
