Re: "sessionOptions.SshPrivateKeyPassphrase" not working!

Please attach a full session log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate log file, set Session.SessionLogPath. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. 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 can mark the attachment as private.

"sessionOptions.SshPrivateKeyPassphrase" not working!

I was made to understand that having installed the latest beta version "" of "WinSCPnet.dll" namely this version:, you could use the above sessionOptions variable to pass on the Passphrase of your private key. Well, i've done all that but it doesn't seem to work. I keep getting this response: "Disconnected: No supported authentication methods available (server sent: publickey)". Now my question please if some one could help? I urgently need a working example of any powershell script that uses this parameter. Thanks in advance. By the way, thumbs up for this great piece of work. The Author deserves all the applause and respect.
