Do you have Remember session password and pass it to PuTTY checked?

Yes, I do. I upgraded my WinSCP 3 to 4 beta, and I had several sessions saved with this option. WinSCP 3 successfully sent passwords, but when I start putty in beta 4, putty requests password again.

The same problem. It's a very useful feather to send a password to PuTTY, but in version 4.0.0 (Build 342) it's not work Sad

The option "Remember session password and pass it to PuTTY" is checked.

Same problem here. Worked with 3.8.2, does not with 4.x

Keep up the great work! In our company we chose WinSCP/Putty over a commercial product which costs several houndres dollars!

That is also why some of the users donate to WinSCP Idea

Many thanks!

For me it works Sad Where do you type in the password? On login dialog or when you are prompted for it during authentication or do you have it stored in the session? Also do you use really password authentication or keyboard interactive authentication?

I have the passwords stored in the sessions and activated the "... pass it to putty" option in the preferences.
Downgraded to 3.8.2 and it works again (i use the newest Putty version).


About the donation thing: our company regularly donates to OpenSource projects such as TYPO3.
I will tell my boss to include WinSCP in the future, because its really a great piece of software.

I recently upgraded Winscp version to 4.0 beta from 3.8.2 and "Remember session password and pass it to PuTTY" option is no more working.

I hate to be a pest, but any idea when a patch may be out? Or should I downgrade back to v3 for now?

Thank you for fix, but I find out another bug -- if a password contains a quotes (") PuTTY alert an error "Invalid Port Number" and close.

I'll check, but I'm afraid this cannot be solved as windows generally have problems passing quote as command line parameter.
