    Default EC2 SCP Access (GUI)

    Getting back into EC2 for a little side project I have on the back burner.

    Any recommendation for a GUI SCP client for MacOS? I am finding the command line quite tedious for the volume and nature of transfers I am doing.

    Stek,

    You can't point me to A walk through for this that actually works. Everything I find is tulip.

    Saved pem to ~/.ssh/cfl.pem
    Created ~/.ssh/config
    IdentityFile "~/.ssh/cfl.pem"
    chmod 700 ~/.ssh/cfl.pem

    restarted SSH daemon.

    Now stumped by user/pass credentials I should give.

    Did you set protocol in Transmit to SFTP (it defaults to FTP)....

    Yup.

    I'm baffled.

    It's a lovely piece of software though. Will be perfect when I get it working.

    Just 'works' for me! Locally and remotely.

    I didn't mess around with pem files though, why do you need to do that? Is it an EC2 thing? Mabes you just need to generate a key pair and add to authorized_hosts?

    ssh-copy-id might work for you in that case....

    EDIT: just checked EC2 - what a faff!!

    Thanks for your help.

    Yep it is an absolute faff. Put all your security in a file stored on a local drive.

    It's not like anyone can boot a Mac in single user mode is it?

    Can you not do the normal Unix thing, ssh-keygen an RSA key on MacOs and paste into ~/.ssh/authorized_keys on server end?

    Will give that a go in the morning thanks, sounds like an idea. I am 3 beers in now so best not to touch something as frustrating as EC2.
