From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3; Linux)
Description of problem:
The sftp:// kioslave allowing you to use Konqueror as a convenient GUI
filemanager over a SFTP connection completely fails if that SSH host is not
already in the ~/.ssh/known_hosts file. KDE seems to lack a dialog asking the
user if they want to add that host to their known_hosts file like command-line
ssh or sftp does.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to connect to a sftp://username@serveraddress host that is not
already in your ~/.ssh/known_hosts.
Sits there until a timeout, fails without explanation.
Should pop-up dialog asking if they want to add the host to their known_hosts
file. Something like this below that ssh asks:
The authenticity of host 'foo.example.com (192.168.0.1)' can't be established.
RSA key fingerprint is a5:4b:91:28:e5:e2:ee:c0:7c:a4:90:09:56:68:4b:fa.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?
Fixed in Phoebe.
