OK, are you able to connect with another SSH client, like PuTTY?
Let me apologize for the delayed response. I was sick for the past month. Yes, I was able to login using the GUI and recently I was able to.connect using code after the pw was changed to not use certain special characters. I will download the recent released version and test using the special characters translated with utf-8 as my next task. I will follow up with the results. Again thanks.
