Thanks for all the suggestions.

I tried "sftp user at hostname" as advised and that did indeed work fine. This set me off on a search for known problems with Filezilla. It seems a lot of Fedora users were having similar problems with Filezilla 3.7.3, which turned out to be the version I was running. For some reason it was disallowing SFTP connections using SSH keys.

I've installed a later version (3.10.2) from a PPA and everything is now working fine.

For all that success, though, I cannot access the box from any other using Filezilla (SFTP). It just hangs then times out. I know it's not a problem with Filezilla per se as all my other laptops can "see" each other through it.
