RSA Key won't take

Jeremy Ricketts 8 years ago updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 8 years ago 3
On OSX, I tried copying my id_rsa into /ssh within Textastic. I left everything else default. I tried entering my username. I tried entering my server password even though this RSA key doesn't use one. I tried importing my id_rsa.pub instead, but that didn't work. I keep getting "Transfer Error. Wrong passphrase or invalid/unrecognized private key file."

I know this id_rsa works because I use it to SSH into my server via terminal, Transmit FTP, and other applications. Lastly, I tried using some of the other files in my ~/.ssl folder on OSX. Oh, and I also tries using my server's FQDN instead of the IP.

Still get the same message! Any thoughts?
Is your key file protected by a pass phrase? You need to enter the pass phrase in the password field below the user name. 
So, I'm an idiot. I was using the wrong password. Closed!
It's great to hear that it's working for you now.
