Recently I tried to make use of the sftp feature of FileZilla. But I realized that nor the method
- of adding the privat key to FileZilla
- using the SSH_AUTH_SOCK
worked for me.
I don't know why SSH_AUTH_SOCK is not working. But I guess the problem with adding the id_ed25519 key has to do with the fact, that the file format for encrypted private key has chaned.
The old format seems to be:
-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
-----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
The new one misses the header that says that the following is encrypted.
-----BEGIN OPENSSH PRIVATE KEY-----
-----END OPENSSH PRIVATE KEY-----
So my feature request is to support the new key format that FileZilla is using here.
