Is it possible to connect to ssh server using pantheon-files with public key or .pem file, i really need this integration. The GUI now only show server, surname and password field i cant see a way to select a ssh key
You should submit an "wishlist" issue on Github about this ( at https://github.com/elementary/files/issues). This is not something that is currently implemented within Files.
You could try like this:
- Set your config file in ~/.ssh
Define your host as follows:
Host some.mydomain.com HostName mydomain.com Port 22 User myuser IdentityFile ~/.ssh/my_id_rsa
Next, in Pantheon Files just set your SSH host as some.mydomain.com with no username and password.
Connect and have fun.
