thanks much for your detailed explanation on eating fish ;-)

Imho, fish is nothing more than a very good frontend to ssh. So I use 
fish like you do. Just when it does not work, I use ssh to test things out.

For example: fish:// did not work for "joeuser" with the 
password "secret", where joeuser is a user on with the 
password "secret" and the ssh server is running on

Then open up konsole and type:
ssh joeuser at

Then you are asked for joeuser's password for the machine, 
that you will surely provide.

And finally you get an exact error message, informing you about what to 
do to correct the problem. Act accordingly!

After this, fish will just work, just as well.

Kind regards

That's it.
