Description (last modified by )
There are several useful things in ~/.ssh/config that would enhance FileZillas SFTP features on OSX and Linux.
On OSX and Linux, the standard way of doing things is for all SSH configuration management to take place in this one centralised file. This provides one-place management for settings such as
- Host Aliases
- Pairing of Host and Private Key information
- Port Settings
- SSH Proxy Settings
And various other configuration options (I've listed the ones that I feel should be considered essential).
