    Good use to access files on SSH servers ! Unfortunately I can't get the connection via keys working. If I'm not mistaken there's no way to use ED25519 (scheme using SHA-512 (SHA-2) and Curve25519), which I would consider state of the art. Please if you have ressources add this to the key feature, thanks! p.s.: I can't get the connection using key working ... at all. Unfortunately I couldn't find any documentation on that either. Tried with an passphrase protected RSA key, getting "Invalid PEM structure, '-----BEGIN...'missing. The file actually starts with '-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY'... Also it's confusing, it says "Exact host name:" but after choosing a key the filename is listed there???!?

  2. guest-avatar

    Ok but newer ssh versions disable the older key exchange algorithms used by this app and make it useless

    I'm fairly satisfied with this as it allows me to upload media to my Linux machines, however it fails if the phone goes to sleep after a couple of minutes, and the transfer does not preserve file times as I think it should. I hope these can be addressed so I don't have to manually set sleep to never or babysit long transfers!

    Does not allow to specify what port number to use so for me it's pretty useless.

  5. guest-avatar

    Very limited functionality. Does not let you use an authentication key, for example.

    #meh (i wisg listed the SMB plugin for now until i figure who my Best Buy order got delivered to, but since all ten or eleven of my phones show a different time, date, year, or calendar, YOUR CONVENIENT NOTIFICATION PROGRAM is requiring me to wait until i get that full body/ back/ face/ all curly hair disease so i finally look like i act, which development is still just.. ) #meh

    Previous version worked flawlessly. Current one has a bug: when copying files using WiFi hotspot, pressing 'copy' closes the hotspot connection preventing this the copying process!! Android 4.4.2, on Galaxy Nexus

  18. guest-avatar

    Have used it extensively and it always has worked impeccably. How can I preserve the modification times etc of the original file when sending from android to remote host?

  19. guest-avatar

    Almost perfect. If you use password authentication, it works great. I was not able to connect to my server using an RSA key. There is no clean interface for importing keys, you create a key directory, and then copy-paste an ASCII key file, all manually. I followed the instructions and still was not able to make it work.

    This plugin work very well. Let to access to remote file system by SSH (SFTP) from GhostCommander.

  26. guest-avatar

    Unlike the other apps like this that I've tried... ghost commander with FTP, SFTP runs lean..quick and is very efficient . when you have to move or manipulate videos and hi res images...in directories containing thousands of files...lag is a prob and responsive matters. Love this powerful app with all the hassle free plugins.

  27. guest-avatar

    Like I said at the last add-on, these make Ghost Commander work so much better.

  28. guest-avatar

    3 stars because key-based auth is still gimped requiring manual intervention instead of being able to just select from file manager.

  29. guest-avatar

    Great expansion for ghost commander.

    Can you add ftps support (no ssh)?

  39. guest-avatar

    Excellent. No issues.

  40. guest-avatar

    (... and non-standard port, too -- host:port). Finally I can do all my moving stuff around in one client ... With some speed optimisation in the SSH module I'd give it 6 stars. :) Standard FTP (in the main program) is already as fast as it can get.

  41. guest-avatar

    SSH key authentication has been added. Oddly, it requires that the private key be named for the server you're connecting to. But it works.

  42. guest-avatar

    As file managers go I like Ghost a lot and SFTP makes it even more useful. It just misses a few added features: - nonstandard port - key based auth (could it be made to share/import the same connections and keys as those saved in (vx) connectbot ?)

  43. guest-avatar

    Nice to have sftp but lacks two-factor authentication support which is needed for better security. If added I will set to 5 stars.

  44. guest-avatar

    Now I can use GC for all file operation within my home server and connected smartphones, anywhere...

  45. guest-avatar

    Works well

    Non standard port works now. But non casesensitivity in sort seemingly aint working yet
