 This was originally in the Google Group, but Dave Kocher suggested: No,
 this is not intended – we actually tried to improve interoperability with
 different authentication schemes for SSH. Can you please open a ticket at

 This essentially is preventing me from using CyberDuck, so definitely
 looking for a solution soonest. I'm assuming others are having this same


 Does CyberDuck no longer use pageant on Windows to store and access ssh-
 keys? For me at least, it is not since this last update to v6.3. However
 MountainDuck 2.1.0 seems to be working fine will all the same bookmarks,
 and is accessing pageant just fine (same time, same computer).

 If this is not an intentional change, any ideas on troubleshooting? The
 'Use Keychain' is checked in Prefs, but opening any bookmark shows the
 message in the screenshot, and the 'save password' is automatically
 checked. If I edit this example bookmark, the username is in fact there in
 the bookmark, but you can see it is not visible in the connection dialog.
 Here, if I uncheck the 'save password', and add my username, the login
 button does nothing.

 Looking forward to some constructive assistance, because I'm stumped here.
