how to type passcode in sftp session on Nautilus


I am trying to connect a server using sftp on Nautilus. The problem is that this server uses one time password, and it asked for PASSCODE after login. I fee this is different from the usual password.

This passcode is prompted sort of after I login. So, it is no problem if I am using a terminal. I also tried WinSCP on Windows 7, and I was prompted to type the passcode. However, if I tried to login on Nautilus, it times out. I guess basically, Nautilus does not recognize the "passcode", and simply wait until the server give anything else.

My question is, is there any option to type the passcode on Nautilus.

Following is my system.
linux distribution: RHEL 6.2
Nautilus 2.28.4

Thank you.


nautilus, passcode, sftp
