I'm using public-key auth when using SFTP/ssh and I'm connecting to lots of different hostnames (that I don't want to create bookmarks for).
In the “Open Connection” dialog I now have to click on More Options>Check the “use public key” checkbox then select the public key file I want to use. Every time I connect. Quite laborious.

So, it would be great If cyberduck could to one or all of the following:

  1. default to the behaviour of commandline ssh and try public key auth first (with a default location of ~/.ssh/id_rsa where, incidentally, the key lies that I now have to select every time) and then prompt for a password if necessary
  2. remember the public key choice I did last time i connected
  3. have a preference in General>Connection that allows me to select a default public key (similar to the default login)

That would greatly ease a workflow across multiple SFTP-machines with public key.

I agree the default public key to try first would be a convenient feature. However, note that creating a bookmark of the opened connection will save the reference to the public key used.

Also, since 3.0.2 one can select a public key from the login prompt.

I think this enhancement has been resolved by reading the OpenSSH configuration from ~/.ssh/config.
