besides sftp:// the KDE- Web browser supports fish:// a ssh/scp kio-slave which is faster than the sftp:// implementation but which doesnt work with scponly.

It would be great if future version could support this!

Thank you very much!

    Fish support cannot be added to scponly. The Fish KIO slave works by uploading a perl script to the machine being connected to, and then running that perl script. Thus, it requires both a typical shell and a perl interpreter. As the contents of the perl script could not be verified, and the purpose of scponly is to disallow arbitrary programs to be run, this conflicts with scponly's main goal.

    Hm,
    that sound reasonable... Stupid thing to require perl for fish:// ...
    You can close this feature-request!

    Thanks for your work!

    btw. does fuse-sshfs have similar problems or could that be supported?
