That's where I'm running out of ammo. I have so little background in where all the little pieces of this puzzle come from that it makes finding the pieces and then understanding if they fit or not a very puzzling process. It does look like "kdDebug(KIO_SFTP_DB)" is one of the critical pieces. In kio_sftp.cpp it apparently does the initial gathering of the ssh connection information: kdDebug(KIO_SFTP_DB) << "setHost(): " << user << "@" << h << ":" << port << endl; This looks to takes setHost(), the user the host and port to form the url "user@host:port". Now I don't know if this is just to form the error displayed or if this is where the actual information is gathered. It looks like it is the error, because the port should be 'mPort'. That where we need an experienced eye on this issue :) -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
