OSX Termius Application Asking for Password When Using Key

Hello, just installed Termius and all of our servers are set to key-auth only -- even when using a key Termius prompts for a regular password. This makes it unable to be used on OSX with key auth. We are running the latest version available from the App store on a MacBook Pro.

Thanks for reaching out.

We can’t reproduce the issue on our side yet. Though we pushed the beta version with a few potential fixes.

Could you please check the latest beta and see if ti works for you?

    Same is for stable and beta - can't connect using an ssh key (the one that has no passphrase)
    Beta is not asking for a passphrase but refuses to connect me - and my integrated terminal works fine with the same ssh key.

    Maybe provide the option to use the ~/.ssh/ folder and use the public and private key from there

    It ended up being the software requests the public and private separate when you can actually just paste the contents of the entire PPK combined into the private key box. This resolved the issue and I can access all of my devices.
