Thread: Dolphin won't connect to SFTP/SCP server

  1. #1

    Default Dolphin won't connect to SFTP/SCP server

    OpenSUSE 12.1 x64

    Trying to browse a PC with SFTP/FISH in Dolphin

    Enter the url in the form 'fish://user@server:22/home/user' and get prompted for a password, then nothing happens. No error message, just an endless 'Loading folder' status bar. No evidence of the attempted connection appears in the server's logs.

    Other file browsers can connect to the server (e.g. Nautilus under Ubuntu) and scp from the command line works.

    Is the "OpenSUSE 12.1 x64" system the server you are connecting to?

    If so, check "/etc/ssh/sshd_config" on that system. You are looking for the line with the path to "sftp". It should read:
    Code:
    Subsystem       sftp    /usr/lib/ssh/sftp-server
    and that is a change from what it was in earlier opensuse releases.
    openSUSE Leap 15.1; KDE Plasma 5;
    testing Leap 15.2Alpha

    No the server's a Slack 13.37 box but, as mentioned, everything else connects to it okay including the scp command line tool on the problem client machine. It looks like a problem with Dolphin or the kio slave system, it doesn't even throw up an error message, just sits there.
