    I installed the Mac SSh program and want to use it to connect to a secure FTP site with Fetch.
    After following the directions to create a key pair (below) I tried to use the key with Fetch.

    Fetch did not "see" the key file within the folder or the exported key file that i also saved.

    The MacSSH program sucessfully opened a secure connection, but I could not get Fetch to recognize the connection.

    can you tell me how to make this work?

    key pair:

    To create your key pair, go to the Favorites settings (Menu "Favorites", option "Edit Favorites…"), click on "Change", and in the SSH2 tab, click "Initialize SSH…". This is to be done only once for all SSH2 connections, and creates a couple of files named "identity" and "" in MacSSH Preferences folder.
