Hi Justin. The only file I have is /home/user_name/.ssh/known_hosts . The
others don't exist. But? If Konqueror works with the fish protocol ok, there
logically should be no reason why Kbear should not work using the fish
protocol, unless it's broken in Kbear. As I've previously said. It appears to
partially work, as, if I remove the RSA key
in /home/user_name/.ssh/known_hosts, Kbear recreates it, so it logically must
be partially working.
I don't use Kbear, but am merely trying to help SOTL with this problem.
Konqueror works fine for me with fish, and I normally use Gftp for
transferring files between my machines. But even Gftp has the options to use
other protocols, and I find they don't work. I suppose basically, both Gftp,
and Kbear are ftp clients, and work fine with that protocol. Nigel.
