Have you uploaded your public ssh key via FAS at your account ? Use the browser to upload the public ssh key.

Go here and login.

If you have something at the queue, do it. Complete it.

  1. While logged in, click on "My Account" on the side bar.
  2. Select "edit" link next to "Account Details."
  3. Click the BROWSE button at the "Public RSA SSH Key:" field.
  4. Navigate in your PC files, then find and select the id_rsa.pub (be aware of the .pub. We want the public key here, not the private)
  5. Click the Save button.
  6. Verify that you have uploaded the ssh public key successfully. You will see "ssh-rsa" followed by alpha numeric string in "Public SSH Key:" field of your Account Details.

The id_rsa.pub file is stored under a hidden folder named .ssh in your home directory.

Prerequisite: You must be sponsored in a group (other than the CLA groups ) in order to gain your free space at fedorapeople.org

In order to connect via nautilus (in Fedora 20) just write the address at the appropriate field.

Click on "Connect to Server" at the side bar and write sftp://yourusername@fedorapeople.org

I have already completed the above steps. After that I have tried to connect. Then I am getting the error.

I added a prerequisite at my answer above. Check it out.

OK I am not yet sponsored in any other group. I have applied for membership in two weeks about two weeks ago but the status is still unapproved. So that is the reason. It seems I shall have to wait. :)

If one has to access space at fedorapeople.org then one has to be a member of some other group other than the CLA groups. This is a pre requisite as mentioned in the answer by NikTh. One needs to check this out first before doing the other steps.

This adds no value beyond the answer it competes with...
