I can connect via PuTTY (SSH) and through Filezilla (SFTP), but I can not with WinSCP.
My SSH port is 491.
Version of WinSCP: 5.7.7 (Compilación 6257) Spanish interface
I not remember which was the last version of WinSCP that worked for me.
Version of Microsoft Windows running WinSCP on: Windows 7 64 bits SP1.
Transfer protocol:SFTP
Scripting/automation: no
Interface style: Commander
Error: Authentication failed! (view files attached logs)
Precise steps that lead to the problem: To connect
log.log (4.86 KB) Private file

Description: (none)

Please attach an event log from PuTTY, as well as a log file from FileZilla (not a message log from GUI).

It would be great if you try to find our what version of WinSCP worked for you.

Dear prikryl, I just try all versions and any fails to connect.
Is there any configuration that can be changed for authentication work?

That does not look like PuTTY event log (you have to right-click its window title and select "Event Log").

For FileZilla, can you set logging "Debug information" level to "Verbose"?

Anyway, don't you have some special character in the password? Like some accented letter.

Yes, for security reason I have some special character in the password.
WinSCP does not accept special characters in passwords?
