I set up openssh on my server to listen to xx port and to use authorized_keys. From a Windows client, I am able to login to my server using my passphrase using putty. All Ok. This is what I wanted.
The problem now: With an Ubuntu desktop I use connect to server, I select the method = ssh, port = xx, host = ip, folder = correct folder, etc. Click connect and boom I am connected. Is this a bug?
When I use sftp using ssh to connect to a server, is it suppossed to obey the openssh config settings? Is it supposed to ask me for the passphrase instead of username/password?
If this the way it behaves then what other services are bypassing config files?
Could please give me a hint to avoid that.
