I store my private keys in the KeepassXC password manager. When I log in, all the keys are sent to the OpenSSH agent on Windows, making them available for my Bitvise SSH Client and VS Code. This ensures the security of the keys and allows me to connect to the server with a single click. Is there a way to connect to HeidiSQL using an SSH key from the OpenSSH agent?
Connection with SSH key loaded from OpenSSH agent
Thank you! I have successfully established a connection using an SSH tunnel. The issue was that I couldn't find a straightforward explanation of this type of connection and was expecting to find all the settings in one place, where I could select the agent, as I do in other applications. Initially, I was able to connect using plink.exe, and then I also succeeded in connecting using ssh.exe. Since I have OpenSSH on Windows 11 and use it with other applications, I prefer to use a single agent for all applications. Therefore, plink.exe is no longer necessary.
