    guess that there is a key missing ...


    it does not work - even if i take care that both clients

    eg on

    a. the windows machine (source - and old notebook )
    b. the linux notebook /( the one that receives the configuration files )

    are exacly on the same version...

    guess that there is a key missing !?

    note if the files are text based then remember that Windows use CR+LF for end of line and Linux just uses LF this can cause confusion sometimes.

    1. A FYI, Microsoft announced this year as part of a batch of similar announcements that at least on Win10 this invisible line feed character is being eliminated, so there won't be a problem using files modified by Windows and non-Windows text editors.

    2. This has only happened on Windows if you use a Microsoft text editor (eg Notepad, Wordpad, etc). Even in Windows, if you use command line text editors or most 3rd party text editors, you won't have that LF problem. Over the years, this has been my personal solution... If I'm using a file that's modified on both Windows and Linux, I use a command line text editor to make changes in Windows.

    HTH,

    many thanks for the hints - food for thoughts

    another guess could be the following#


    a guess is that we are connecting to the server using a publickey, but when we exported the filezilla configuration it did not export our key file. We probably need to track down the key file on Windows, copy it over to our linux machine then browse to it in the configura

    well i guess that i need to add a ssh key file to the new machine... : that said i guess that i need to port over the key from the old notebook to the new one.

    This means that i have to look for the key - on the old notebook...

    i am so glad to be here in this forum - this is a great place!!


    keep up the great work - it rocks
