I am using the latest version of WinSCP (verson 5.1.7 build 3446).
There is a problem with logging in via SFTP if password contains non ASCII characters.
In my case it is "" (o umlaut). Changing the password to less strong without non ASCII characters solved the problem but I think you should have a look on this issue.

I have found an older post in which the guy had a pound sign in his password. The post is from 2011 and it looks like this problem has not been solved for a long long time then.

Any chance of getting a test account on your server? On the servers I've tried this with, PuTTY does not work either with non-ascii passwords.

Hi, unfortunately the server does not belong to me. Do you have the terminal coding in PuTTy set to UTF-8?
