Description Usama 2016-03-17 12:27:07 UTC
Remote File SSH Type does not connect on Windows. It saves the connection but does not connect if you saved the password or not.

It works on Ubuntu 15.10 and not working on Windows 7

A user reported the issue at #libreoffice support channel and I confirm it.

How to reproduce:
1. Click remote files from the side bar
2. Chose add service and pick SSH
3. Fill the information of your SSH connection

Nothing happens

Comment 1 Buovjaga 2016-03-21 17:27:40 UTC
Reproduced.

I used the rebex read-only test server from here: http://www.sftp.net/public-online-sftp-servers
I confirmed the test server works otherwise.

@Giuseppe: Can you dig into why this isnt working?

UPDATE: both me and Usama are now seeing "Nonexistent file" error when trying to access on Linux (to a verified working SFTP host).

Comment 4 Giuseppe Castagno (aka beppec56) 2016-07-03 09:19:02 UTC
Checked on current pre-release, using OpenSSH on a local VM:

Version: 5.2.0.1

CPU Threads: 8; OS Version: Linux 3.13; UI Render: default; 
Locale: en-US (en_US.UTF-8)

On Ubuntu 14.04 64b was not reproducible using as SSH credentials name+password.
On the same platform I got the "Not existent file" error reported on comment 3 when I enabled the ssh server to accept public keys as authentication device.

On Windows 7 32b reproducible, in this case there is no lan activity towards the ssh server, probably internal problem platform specific.

I'm going to investigate further in Windows. Will be a lengthy business...

Found the time to do some investigation.

Using:
Version: 5.3.0.0.alpha0+

For me, it works correctly in Linux, with the following connection setting.
server:		test.rebex.net	        port: 22
user:		demo
password:	password

root: /

In Windows cannot work because it needs GNOME gio library, not available in Windows.

Back to NEW, not sure was state this bug should assume.

Comment 9 Mike Kaganski 2019-11-30 15:10:52 UTC
This is clearly platform-specific issue; this one had been reported against Windows; as indicated in comment 5, it's not implemented on Windows; so possibly it's an enhancement request to implement missing functionality (although I keep it bug, since it creates discrepancy in feature set between supported platforms).

Similar problem on different platforms should be discussed in dedicated issues (be it macOS, or a Linux without Gnome, etc).

Of course, one universal solution could be to re-implement this using some portable library.
