BUG: Private key asking for passphrase when shouldn't

Yesterday I was using Termius just fine... this morning (8/13/18) it updated to v3.0.4 and now all of a sudden, I'm being asked for a passphrase when I use a private key. Using the same key on Putty connects successfully.

Your software offers no option for rollback so now it is completely useless to me.

        Hey, i have same problem like @Graham just on v3.3.5 also when i connect to ssh where is only password i need enter it every connection, it's like saved password is ignored from profile

        I'm also experiencing this bug in version 3.3.5 (Mac).

        I'm using an rsa key (without passphrase) to connect to hosts in a group. I've specified which key to use at the group level.

        I can connect if any random string into the passphrase box, but the unnecessary pop up is quite frustrating.

        This key works without a passphrase if I connect using a local terminal.

        Android phone: Xiaomi MI MAX
        Android version: 7.0
        Termius app version: 3.3.37
        Continuously requesting passphrase, could not connect.

        Mac Os version (3.3.5) for the same key and server works correctly.

        The same for me on v3.3.5, it asks for a passphrase to login which not exists.

        I'm on v3.35 I think, and it still asks for a passphrase... There shouldn't be one, regular terminal does not ask me it, because there is none.

        Same issue here. First time termius user, probably last-time termius user as well. SSH Key authentication is broken and doesn't work. Tough to keep trying termius when you can pop over to
        iTerm and it "just works".

        I've faced this problem when I mixed up private and public keys.
        After correct placing it works good

        Still I do have the same Problem - Termius keeps asking for a Passphrase when it shouldn't. Termius version 3.2.4

        Hi guys, i think this problem also happened to me. My configuration just fine and working on Termius Ubuntu 18.04. but it keeps asking me for a password everytime when i try to login using private-key, even when i set the right password, the prompt keep showing.

        Hello,

        Thanks for reaching out and sorry for the inconvenience.

        We've just released the 3.0.5 version which should fix the problem you have.

        Could you please check that everything works well for you now? If it doesn't, please let us know which type of key you are using to connect to the servers.

        Thanks in advance and we're looking forward to hearing from you.

        I have the same problem.. I am using keys that have never had passphrase set. No matter what I add for the public/private fields, termius asks for passphrase every time I try and connect

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I have the same problem. I can't use termius anymore. Keeps asking for passphrase. Even if I enter teh correct one I can't login.
