I’m trying to get the External SSH Tool working on Knime. I have installed OpenSSH on my PC and followed the process to create an RSA key, add a host, etc. Basically I can now connect to a remote server using OpenSSH from the command prompt (ssh -p user@hostname). However, in Knime when I try to configure an External SSH Tool node and check the connection I get the error:
In the Knime preferences, I have set the SSH2 home to C:\Program Files\OpenSSH\bin\ssh (location of known_hosts and id_rsa* files), private keys = id_dsa,id_rsa and the remote server appears in the list of Known Hosts.
Any ideas of what might be wrong?
