Apologies. It still fails, but in a "better" way than before.

I have compiled libcurl on Ubuntu from source, enabling ssh and sftp. 

I had no joy with putting a password anywhere where it made sense.

It clearly tries to connect with the help of a public key, but there
appears to be some confusion as I am getting error messages that my
user name and my key do not fit together.

I can ssh into the same server with a key no problem
