How do I use multiple SSH keys with the Robo-FTP client?

Robo-FTP 3.7 and later versions

Starting with v3.7, Robo-FTP client natively supports multiple SSH keys by allowing you to assign a unique key to each Managed Site record. If you are using Robo-FTP v3.7 or newer, please consult the Help file installed with the software for details.

Robo-FTP 3.6.x and older versions

The remainder of this article applies only to Robo-FTP v3.6.x and older. For these versions, Robo-FTP only stores one SSH private key in your configuration.

There's a way to work around this. It involves creating multiple settings (.set) files, and importing each one with a script command before logging onto the corresponding SFTP server.

To do this, set Robo-FTP up to log onto a particular SFTP server using key authentication. Export those settings and give the file a name appropriate to the server you log in with. Then change your settings to match the next SFTP site you want to log into, and repeat the process.

In your script, use the IMPORT command to change your configuration to match the server you are about to log into, and then use the FTPLOGON command to log in.
