It would be REALLY nice if we could update passwords from the failed logon screen. As I use this software to access servers I run, I change passwords regularly and it is a pain in the butt to have to close the software, load the site, change the password, save the site and then finally logon.

Thanks!

There's no mechanism in SSH to change password.

Perhaps the request was misunderstood and/or I would like to revive it.

When starting a saved session that has a stored password in which the password on the server has already been changed, WinSCP tries
Searching for host...
Connecting to host...
Authenticating...
Authenticating with pre-entered password.
Access denied.


And prompts the user to enter the session password:

It would be nice to have a "Save Password" checkbox available to store the entered password for the session in WinSCP instead of having to load the session screen and changing it there.

Thanks,

Crash

This feature has been implemented already. It will be included into the next major release.
