Re: Did you resolve this

@george338: And I have the same answer for you: Please post session log files both from the code and GUI. Did you use GUI to generate your code template?

Did you resolve this

I am having a similar issue.

SFTP Further Auth required

Hi Guys,

I'm trying to connect to a remote server via SFTP
Add-Type -Path "C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCPnet.dll"
# Setup session options
$sessionOptions = New-Object WinSCP.SessionOptions -Property @{
    Protocol = "sftp"
    SshHostKeyFingerprint = "ssh-rsa 2048 ######c1mPs7MODjkyCxawY+wIAn1m7UmV4NdPE="
    HostName = ""
    UserName = "username"
    Password = "pass"   
$session = New-Object WinSCP.Session
# Connect

The credentials work in a GUI session but I get the below error in my script.
Exception calling "Open" with "1" argument(s): "Connection has been unexpectedly closed. Server sent command exit status 0.

Authentication log (see session log for details):
Using username "excanf".
Further authentication required
Authentication failed."
At C:\secure-file-transfer-project\Powershell-Scripts\CR_Stockfile_Import.ps1:22 char:9
+         $session.Open($sessionOptions)
+         ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [], MethodInvocationException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : SessionRemoteException

Any assistance would be appreciated
