Hi SOTL. Couldn't find Kbear on Fedora, but got it on Debian Sarge. As you say 
it works ok using ftp, but whatever I try I can't get it to use fish either. 
I have Konqueror using fish, so deleted the RSA key 
in /home/user_name/.ssh/known_hosts on the machine that I have Kbear on. Then 
on Kbear I entered the IPaddress of the other machine I wanted to access, 
selected the fish protocol, with login name , and password, and path to the 
directory I wanted to access. This then created a new RSA key. So far so 
good. But then got a refusal to connect. Either the fish protocol just don't 
work on Kbear, or we are doing something wrong. I think the best tactic is to 
contact the Kbear developer, as nothing else is coming back off of the list. 
Either I can contact him, or you, or perhaps both of us, to put on the 
pressure. Annoying isn't it. Nigel.
