How do I connect to a remote server with a public key using Fugu? I'm using Amazon EC2, so I have
.pem public key, but I'm totally new to Fugu and I can't see any form or input for the public key. In the "connect to" text input shall I enter in my public DNS?

with your key being at the root and named
then the relevant input is:
Hope it works for you!
