Some FTP servers run with SSH.
Mine authentificate users with SSH public and private keys.

X.509 certificate can be used with SFTP in filezilla but RSA DSA with SSH would be a wonderful functionality :)

Thanks for all !

This feature has been implemented. Please update to the most
recent version of FileZilla.

Right. It's now possible using Putty tools like Pageant.

To make a link on your Desktop that also launch Filezilla :
"C:\Program Files\FileZilla Client\pageant.exe" "C:\id_rsa.ppk" -c "C:\Program Files\FileZilla Client\filezilla.exe"

Nice job ! Thanks !
As said, read
and Putty documentation (chapter "Using Pageant for authentication")

Is it possible to implement it directly in filezilla rather than using a 3rd party program and a desktop link for each server you want to login?

Looks like there's little hope of a FileZilla-core option. The external programs have been around for three years.

But it does seem to work just fine, even without PuTTY installed. (I use FileZilla from my flash drive. Not the PortableApps version though.)

FileZilla nowadays can be configured to use a private key file. There are some limitations, as noted in #7270, but besides that, it works.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
