Re: Connect Failure to Openssh_3.5p1 / Openssl 9.6.h

Why are you using WinSCP 2.1? It's 16 years old!
Use the latest version of WinSCP.

The same for PuTTY - Version 0.53 is 17 years old!

Connect Failure to Openssh_3.5p1 / Openssl 9.6.h

Hello !
Today I first tried to use the Winscp2.1 (verson 1 gives a putty out of memory error) - and tried to connect to my 2 Linux Servers - both using openssh3.5p1, one compiled with openssl9.6g (were it works wonderful) and the other with openssl9.6h (doesn't work)

The thing I'm really wondering about is, that I can connect to both using putty0.53b, pagent and psftp (the putty scp command line client) without having any problems..
Further I tried exchanging the sshd_config file - but I didn't change anything...

I 'll attach the logfile, maybe any of you can tell me what went wrong, or maybe anyone can tell me what to do, 'cause I don't find anything wrong as the connection seems to be enabled..

thx, markus
