How do you set password for remote server from GUI

First of all, loved the 5.0 release

second: you introduced GUI to rsync but I think either I am dumb or I can find where I can set password for the remote server. from command line it asks for password but when you click Run after putting initial values in I am not asked for a password so that rsync session can be started.

any help will be appreciated

Cheers

Jas

Thanks for your feedback. As

Thanks for your feedback. As of the initial release (5.0), entering passwords is not possible as I haven't found a sleek and intuitive way handling multiple passwords :-) You can either switch to public key authentication or create a batch file and update the command with password-file directive.

I register it as a feature request and will try to address it with a patch.
