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.
It actually works if you use the default id file (
~/.ssh/id_rsa). You need to enter the server name like
user@host and leave user name and password fields blank. Then, there comes a pop-up asking you to enter the id file password and all works.
