    Use OpenSSH configuration file

    Specifies the location of the OpenSSH configuration file which allows you to define SSH access outside of CloverDX Designer. The path to the file is ~/path/to/.ssh/ssh_config There is no default file; therefore, without proper specification, no configuration file is loaded.
