Hi,

New to WinSCP. I am trying to use it to have a simple graphic interface to our dedicated server (CentOS). We have root acces an we can login with Putty or SecureCRT. However the same config does not allow to login with the pwd. This is the log

Can you see any difference between PuTTY and WinSCP session in the server's log file?

Martin,

I solved the problem changing login with password by a keychain pair. It works fine now. For unkown reason password is not send correctly to our server neither by putty or WinSCP. Excellent product!

Thanks
