how to use .pem file (2 posts)

    I read everything I could find in the message boards about how to use .pem files with Fetch, and tried to follow the directions. However, when I tried to use the Terminal app to get to the .ssh directory I should create the "config" file in, the Terminal app just tells me .ssh directory not found. Can you please tell me what I might be doing wrong, or how to use a .pem file with Fetch 5.3.1 without having a .ssh directory? I even tried downloading the trial version of Fetch 5.7 to see if it would tell me how to do this, but I couldn't find anything in the new version either. I would be willing to buy the newer version of Fetch if it will make it easier to use the .pem file I need, but there's nothing in the Fetch 5.7 help that even talks about .pem files, that I can find. Hope you can help! Thanks!

    I don't think there's any difference between Fetch 5.3.1 and 5.7 where pem files are concerned.

    When you open Terminal type this command:

    mkdir .ssh

    to create the .ssh directory.
