Private key login
Generate your key with ssh-keygen on your Ubuntu SSH Server:

    This was a good app but now it's crap. Sudo commands don't work properly, can't delete servers and it won't remember new command shortcuts. Wish I could roll back to the old version

    Used to be good, but now it's rubbish. Sudo commands need direct input of password, they used to remember the password. Settings are not as customisable as they used to be. You used to be cool man, what happened to you?

    Worked fine until the latest update. Now it crashes on launch.
