    I would like to request ssh-agent support for SFTP transfers.

    Fetch 5 should work with authentication via an ssh agent.

    To do this, first enter your password in the ssh agent.

    Then in Fetch, you should select SFTP from the "Connect using" pop-up menu, and enter a dummy password (just type anything into the password field). Fetch should then get the real password from the ssh agent and make the connection.

    If this does not work, please let us know how it fails, and we will investigate.
