FTP Client keeps asking for Passphrase

Recently installed CyberDuck as my FTP client.

Am using an SSH Public for authentication, and I put a Passphrase on my Private Key.


Why is it that after I log in to CyberDuck and enter my passphrase, it asks for it again every time I try to do something like copy or move a file?

The Passphrase should only be needed once per session...

Give another FTP program a shot and see if it does the same thing...

I second Transmit. It's not free but is well worth the cost if you use SFTP, WebDav, or S3 connections from your mac frequently.

CyberDuck was a go to app for Mac FTP for many years but is extremely slow and still uses Java. If you have banished Java from your Mac for security then Cyberduck is not an option. Transmit is at least twice as fast at transfers, and uses any public/private keys that you have established on your mac for SSH.

Telling me to switch FTP clients based on my question is ridiculous.

I also wouldn't use Transmit because it doesn't have squat for documentation! :rolleyes:


Anyone here care to help me figure out what is going on with CyberDuck??

Sincerely,
