how to use ssh keys for authentication?

Asked by Theresa on 2018-01-29

Hello,

is it possible to use ssh keys for authentication when using ssh?
i use the following when choosing "network server"

ssh://user@server

but it always asks for a password rather than my ssh key.
i do not use password for authentication when using ssh. only use the ssh key.

please help,
thanks theresa

Any idea how to best troubleshoot this? Is there maybe a log file that I could check?
At the moment I have no idea how to fix this.... I can only login to my server using ssh keys, password is disabled by default.

Thanks!

Can you browse your ssh server in nautilus? (i.e. can you mount it with GNOME?) We *should* be using same method it does.
