SFTP - Additional Parameter " ssh-dss" needed

Hello together

For an SFTP connection to an external server, I have to give the following command when I do it via Bash, so that a connection can be established:


Does anyone know if I also have this option within the FTP/SFTP credentials?

The connection is made via private/public keys.

Thanks and Regards


For info: Self Hosted/Docker n8n instance. Version 1.14.2

Information on your n8n setup

  • n8n version: 1.14.2
  • Database (default: SQLite): SQLite
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main): own
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app): Docker

Hi @seljo-ch, I am afraid n8n’s (S)FTP credentials do not currently allow you to specify the -oHostKeyAlgorithms option :frowning:

As such I’ll move this question into the feature request section of our forum so you and other users can vote on having this implemented going forward.
