Topic "Feature request for plugin"

Author Message



I'm forced by my provider to authenticate using a private key. This means that every time I connect I have to enter a passphrase. I know I could be using Pageant and enter the passphrase only once, but still it's quite annoying.

So here comes the feature: Could you create another field in the "Edit session" dialog box, next to "Private key file", where I could save my passphrase so that I don't have to type it all the time?

You can make a key without passphrase.
