I just updated my server to OpenSSH-4.3_p2-hpn and now WinSCP release 3.7.6 refuses to enable compression. Interestingly, PuTTY release 0.58 seems to connect with compression. Or at least it's failing very quitely.

Is there any way for me to check more exactly what is happening? I've already saved the packet logs from putty, if there's somewhere in there I should look...

It seems that neither PuTTY has succeeded with compression. Are you sure you have it enabled on the server-side?

Idea aha, got it. There is a new compression method in OpenSSH called "delayed" (instead of "yes" or "no") that compresses nothing until after the user is authenticated. This way zlib vulnerabilities can't be used against an otherwise secure computer. I'm guessing neither putty nor winscp supports this yet, it's very new...

Anyway, the default setting is now "delayed" instead of "yes". You might want to point this out to the putty guys...

I was searching for this compression bug and found this topic. Does anybody know if and when it will be fixed? (Somebody reported it to Putty developers?)
