Connect via SFTP using a PEM code/public key certificate (2 posts)

    How do I specify a PEM file for an SFTP connection? I can do this in Filezilla, but I would much rather use Fetch if possible.

    There's a message board discussion of this issue here:

    Basically, you need to create (or add to) a file named "config" in the .ssh folder of your home folder, and specify what PEM file you want to use for a certain host. Please let me know if you run into any problems, or have any questions.
