Topic "SSHv2 with DSA publickey authentication"

Hey folks,

Is there any way to use DSA auth with SSHv2? That's the only authentication I allow, and I would
rather avoid enabling RSA authentication.

Another quick question - on the Advanced tab, under "Preferred SSH protocol version", 2 is greyed out - how can I enable that?

Thanks a bunch! Smile

Not yet. You may wait for January, when new version that would support DSA, should be already released.

There are two possibilities: you've either entered path to key on "Basic" tab or you've selected "DES" algorithm. Both is not supported for SSH2 by current version.

Both DSA and public key authentication is already supported by WinSCP 2.1 #119.
