Victory declared in the battle of SSH

I’m a bit of a linux newbie, so it took me a couple days of trying to hook Homesite up to a staging server that only offers SSH 2 connections, but I’m glad to say I did it.

Thanks to a free java package called mindterm and these instructions I finally did it, and now instead of downloading the staging site to my local disk, then editing and uploading every changed file by hand, I can do everything directly from Homesite by just clicking on a filename, editing then pushing save.

I don’t even want to know how much time I wasted over the past year and a half doing this by hand, pulling files down, navigating directories in WinSCP and uploading again (then having to login to use CVS to commit them).
