Pageant and SFTP


I have had pageant setup to use authorized_keys (e.g., no password required) for CVS actions for years now. In fact it worked that way by default.

But I can't get (S)FTP to do the same. The putty/pageant session which works fine for putty (login w/o entering a password) and for CVS actions, fails on FTP commands with an 'invalid password' error. It only works if I put the password in the Server tab's Password field.

So I currently prompt the VBP user for the FTP user and password; which works fine *for me*, but not for anyone (they would lack the UNIX permissions). If they could use the same mechanism as for CVS, this problem goes away.

Is the Pageant 'authorized_keys' mechanism supposed to work with FTP actions?
