Topic "trouble: connecting to SFTP (Blowfish) from cmd line"

I can connect to the site from the GUI if I move the Blowfish to the top of the list in the Encryption cipher selection policy.
However, when I try to attach using the command line, I get the same error that I get in the GUI when Blowfish isn't the first cipher.
"garbled decryption" "Authentication Failed".

I'm using version 4.3.7 (build 1679)

Is there some way to define the cipher order via command line switches or something?

Thanks,
Tom

I am having the exact same problem as was initially reported by guest. I checked out the link, but do not see a definitive method for selecting blowfish specifically when using the command line. The connection seems to default to AES no matter what we do.

I THINK we may need to use the -rawsettings command on the open and force the ssh protocol to ssh-2, but that still doesn't say to use blowfish specifically.

Does anyone have any other pointers here?
