  1. [ubuntu] Re: How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    I installed Xubuntu into a VM.

    I had the same results.

    As with Nautilus, Thunar can open the other servers fine, but with "sg", it also complains that it doesn't understand the file that it's...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    That gives a different response.
    "This location could not be displayed. Sorry, could not display all the contents of "[path]": The connection is closed (the underlying SSH process exited)."
    So, if...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    Yes, you might have missed a couple of my posts. To summarise:


    "sftp sg" works perfectly.
    FileZilla works perfectly.
    Nautilus seems to connect with "sftp://sg", but then fails because it...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    New information. I realised that the two sftp commands weren't identical, because I forgot to add the key. This works:

    sftp -P [customport] -i ~/.ssh/[privatekey] [remoteuser]@[server]
    That one...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    That's nice, but there's a catch-22. I can't SSH to the remote computer, but in order to set up the remote computer, I have to SSH to it. Hmm.

    The the host's website created the initial key. So,...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    Maybe!
  7. [ubuntu] Re: How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    Thank you. From the error messages, it seems that I can already connect. It's just that, once connected, Nautilus doesn't know what to do with it, almost as though the directory isn't a directory,...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    Yes, I do. I can create, delete and modify files in it.

    But.

    Now that you mention it, in all of its subdirectories, yes, but not in the "root" (home).

    That shouldn't make a difference,...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    Actually, this link has proven useful. Comparing to other servers from the same host…

    I can use the other servers without a problem from Nautilus. However, to access them, I need to give the...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    Well spotted! I didn't find that in my searches. It seems that that person can connect, and only gets this error when accessing specific files. Whereas I get that error regardless when trying to...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    Good idea!

    I created a brand new user, and copied across just the private key and config.

    It's the same. I can access the remote server with sftp, but Nautilus still complains, "Could not...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    Well, thank you for your attempts. I do appreciate your time and effort.

    I hope that someone else has an idea.
  13. [ubuntu] Re: How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    Things have changed.

    I decided to delete the old key, and recreate it from scratch, but this time without a password. Maybe the password was a limiting factor? Maybe the key was corrupted?

    This...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    Here are the results.

    org.gnome.system.proxy ignore-hosts ['localhost', '127.0.0.0/8', '::1']
    org.gnome.system.proxy use-same-proxy true
    org.gnome.system.proxy mode 'none'...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    It's provided on their website as text to copy. So, you choose your own file name.

    No. They assume that you know what you're doing, but they do explain how to add it to FileZilla.

    It looks like...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    Thanks, but again, that is for an older version of Nautilus. In that version, Nautilus pops up a dialogue where you can enter the important details. The current version doesn't do that — it seems to...
  17. [ubuntu] Re: How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    I think that I understand what you're getting at. This is the passphrase for the private key itself, rather than a password to access SSH. I can't get in without the private key. I could generate a...
  18. [ubuntu] Re: How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    Thanks for your replies, @scorp123.

    Passphrase, password — aren't they the same thing in this context?

    Can Nautilus work with ssh-agent? I hadn't heard of ssh-agent.
  19. [ubuntu] Re: How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    Ah… good point!

    I forgot that when I gave FileZilla the key, it converted it into a different format (with the same password).

    But, when I use that converted key file with either sftp (command...
  20. [ubuntu] Re: How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    Well, those replies have been interesting and informative, thank you!

    I have made some progress.

    I've made an entry in my ~/.ssh/config file for this. I named the entry sg. Using sg, I get the...
  21. [ubuntu] Re: How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    This is getting complicated! I'll see if I can get that to work.

    Great question!

    I tried:
    sftp [user]@[domain]:[port]/

    It just sits there doing nothing! I can't see how to pass the keyfile...
  22. [ubuntu] Re: How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    Thanks, but I'd rather stick to Nautilus is possible. Constantly switching between two different file managers will be confusing.

    All the gvfs packages are already installed, but not gigolo (what...
  23. [ubuntu] Re: How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    I only have SFTP access, not SSH access.

    I've tried it, and it gives the same response.
  24. [ubuntu] Re: How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, no. I can enter the server there, but I don't get any option to put in the keyfile, or the port, etc., as shown in internet searches.

    Maybe I'm entering the...
  25. [ubuntu] How can I connect to SFTP using Nautilus (Files)

    I've searched the internet for a solution. All solutions that I found apply to old versions of Nautilus, and I can't make it work on my current version.

    I have access to a server via SFTP (I have...
