I use Quanta to edit my remote server files using ssh. I had no problem until yesterday when I upgraded from OpenSUSE 11.3 to 11.4. Now when I try to open a remote file via sftp, I get the message “Error while talking to SSH” my first guess was that port 22 was closed by the firewall, but I still can open remote directories using Dolphin. This is an essential part of my work. Please help!

Try ssh on a terminal. Perhaps on verbose mode.

I made a mistake while typing so I am editing this message.
I was able to connect to the server using terminal and ssh. It seems to be a problem with Quanta.
I can login through Dolphin using fish://
Are we talking both SUSE machines?
The remote server is Debian
It is weird. Quanta can access remote files in another server via ftp but not sftp. It seems like ssh is blocked for Quanta.
OK I found a workaround. The sftp:// url doesn;t work but apparently fish:// does. Can somebody explain this to me?
I have had the same issue with debian. I can’t figure it out.
I just switched the server to SUSE with the exact same settings and it works.
This was my exact problem:
For me ssh in the terminal was fine. fish:// from konqueror was fine
But using the connect to server from Nautilus gives a sftp error like this:
I am seeing the same issue on my newer openSuSE systems running KDE.
Most of my network shares (bookmarked in konqueror or that crappy dolphin) where created using sftp, but some where fish protocol.
On systems 11.2 thru my newest 11.4 I don’t even see the ability to create a sftp ‘network connection’ (konqueror > Go, Network folder> Make Network Folder (script, bm)… SSH is the choice (there is ‘real’ ftp and microsucks, but where dealing with Linux here)…
When I finish creating the ‘connection’, it is Always a ‘fish:’ ‘shortcut’ or link…
Is one better than the other and why should I care.
I remember in the past (2 years ago maybe) I had to add or start a services something like sftp in YaST2> Network Services (xint) or something???
again, is one better (more like the ‘browsing’ a 'local drive) than the other?
I can’t even remember why this was an issue for me 2 years ago…: (
Thanks in advance,
I always use fish://
And do it by just typing directly to the address bar
Once you have connected, drag the link in the address bar to the bookmarks in konqueror or to places in dolphin
**** laptops and the quire ass ‘touchpad’… that should have been dropped in the early '90’s
I wrote a whole paragraph here, but f*ing pad and it’s gone.
I’m not rewriting the whole how to, but the option for sftp and fish is associated with a script I am missing on my main system called ‘Network Services’.
I’ll write later how to resolve this,
Right now I’m pissed about these faggy touchpads…
I try not to touch mine. It’s very sensitive
