Description Warren Togami 2003-01-23 09:27:20 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030115

Description of problem:
When you connect to a sftp:// address in Konqueror it logins via SFTP to a
remote SSH server.  If that host's sshd key isn't in your ~/.ssh/known_hosts
file it will pop-up a window asking if you want to accept that key, just like
ssh client would do.

In Phoebe2 this works properly, except it pops up two windows asking the same
thing instead of one.  I believe Phoebe1 didn't have this behavior.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Phoebe2 kdebase-3.1-0.14

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Erase server host key from ~/.ssh/known_hosts.
2. Run konqueror
3. sftp://username@servername
Actual Results:  
Two pop-up windows.

Expected Results:  
There should be only one pop-up window.

Comment 1 Warren Togami 2003-01-23 09:35:10 UTC
Additionally, if you click "Yes" both times it adds the host key twice to
known_hosts.  This is rather improper.

Comment 2 Than Ngo 2003-02-22 22:16:43 UTC
It seems to be fixed in beta5 or later. I cannot reproduce it in this beta5

Comment 3 Warren Togami 2003-02-22 23:42:13 UTC
I still see this in latest Rawhide.

Comment 4 Warren Togami 2003-02-24 08:56:48 UTC
Arg... sometimes it causes kfmclient to segfault.

Comment 5 Warren Togami 2004-11-06 00:15:55 UTC
Seems fixed in FC3.
