SSH in Visual Studio Code with KeePass

Showcase image

Use excellent plug-in KeeAgent which works similarly as integrated Pageant (putty tools) and once you unlock your passwords in KeePass KeeAgent allows you to access your SSH key through Agent.

To allow use of your KeeAgent or Pageant SSH key in Visual Studio Code you would have to use Plink utility which function as an console ssh client supporting Pageant or KeeAgent cached SSH keys.

Unfortunately Visual Studio Code does not support PLink automatically but it supports command-line ssh client. For this reason there is a project ssh2plink which acts as ssh console client but is based on Plink which supports KeeAgent.

You can get it here SSH2Plink

Step 1 - Compiling SSH2Plink

git clone
choco install go (if you do not have go language installed and have choco package manager)

Step 1 - Download builded images (if you want to)



Step 2 - Copy file for your platform into Putty directory

C:\\Program Files\\PuTTY

Step 3 - Set it up in Remote-SSH plugin

The next level - Windows Hello

The next level for this set-up is to use Windows Hello plug-in for KeePass which allows you to authenticate through your Face (e.g. webcamera Logitech Brio supports it or it is integrated in HP EliteBook) or through your fingerprint or PIN code.

  • HyperV backup to AWS S3
    HyperV backup to AWS S3I have a Kubernetes cluster at home based on MicroK8S which would be very difficult to build again and is very difficult to backup because you need to take care of Kubernetes settings, Helm settings and also Persistent Volumes. I was looking for fast and reliable disaster recovery solution to backup whole MicroK8S machine running in HyperV and here is what I found out.
