Re: ask password, trying to reconnec and ask password again

Please post a full log file showing the problem.

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. For posting extensive logs you may use pastebin or similar application. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you may email it to me. You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile. Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have emailed the log.

ask password, trying to reconnec and ask password again

WinSCP 4.2.7

1. connect to server over SCP (password do not saved)
2. do not touch it some long time

WinSCP ask enter passsword again
3. enter password
WinSCP show:
'Server close connection:
Authentication log (see session log for details):
Using username "*".

Authentication failed.'

4. press Reconnect
it try reconnect and ask password again...

Can you do not ask password if WinSCP lost connection, or remember password from step 3?

thank you.
