    Hey guys, I have a home server running SSH that I use to store my music/movies. I can connect to the server using Cyberduck, using my password-protected private key. This is the only authentication method allowed on the server.

    When I try to connect using SSHFS, I don't know how to provide a password for my private key. It never asks, the operation just times out. Does anyone have any experience using SSHFS on a Mac with a password-protected private key?

    I have configured my ssh_config file to use the IdentityFile with the id_dsa contents included. :confused:
