I'm connected to my server via the nautilus, but I can't logout.. I'm trying to make nautilus to forget the password.. (my specific intent is to login with another user, but in anyway, I need to logout) I connected via nautilus -> other locations -> connect to server (sftp protocol, if this matter)

I'll be glad for any help, Thanks, Noam

If you are still connected to the server, click the eject button do disconnect it. Then open the Passwords and Keys application (seahorse). One of the keyrings there should have the password linked to the url of the server. Delete it there.

If you are wanting to change the user, you need to make a new connection anyway. The username is part of the url. e.g. sftp://username@host/file/path

Thanks for the help, the eject button has removed the server from the sidebar. In Password and Keys I not find anything useful - all the items are empty, except "Default trust" - which have most "null", and the other fields are just domains.. ( , , , etc..)

Even "OpenSSH keys" field is empty

What more can I do?

You checked in the "Login" keyring at the top? Maybe because I've been upgrading my system I have a different arrangement. In the Passwords section, I have both a login and default keyring. The login keyring only holds the key for the default keyring which holds everything else.
