Transmit is not compatible with the Apple TV, as Transmit does not support the SSH1 protocol.
We recommend using Fugu. It’s a free program, and can be downloaded at:
Setup options should be as follows:
Connect to: AppleTV.local (or use the Apple TV ip address)
**Under Advanced Settings, you also need to select ‘force ssh1 connection’
This should get you up and running.
Thanks, this works.
