plink and key passphrase

Ninj's profile image Ninj posted 5 months ago in General

Hi, I'm trying Heidi for the first time. We are accessing our databases remotely only through SSH tunnels. Our SSH keys all have a passphrase (we use laptops...)

When I try to connect, plink.exe asks for the passphrase and Heidi just shows the message, without a prompt.

Did I miss something? Using a key without a passhprase is not any more secure than using direct connection with registered password...

Thank you for your help!

Ok I used pageant and it works but does not adresses my issue. I don't want all my credentials to be stored on my laptop. Could Heidi asks for the key passphrase each time, please?

Using ssh keys with a passphrase is indeed not yet supported in HeidiSQL. See issue #284
