#3311 closed Bug report

Cannot cache multiple SSH keys for clustered SFTP servers

At the university where I work, we connect to a clustered web server (approximately named 'webcluster') in order to upload web content. The SFTP server that we connect to is also clustered. It appears to be running server software from the SSH company.

The problem is that FileZilla doesn't know how to save more than one Host key fingerprint per FQDN. This makes sense for a traditional server setup, but now that clustered servers are becoming more common, FileZilla should have the ability to handle the multiple keys sent by a clustered SFTP server.

This may be a "feature" and not a bug, insofar as SSH servers ought not to send multiple fingerprints for a single FQDN. If this is the case, I would appreciate it if someone could indicate where to find information about how to configure an SFTP server cluster properly, so that I (and other users with the same problem) can educate our server administrators about how to do things properly. TKA!

Please don't post the same thing in multiple places, especially since you already got a reply.
