We have Pageant that passes the passphrase to the winscp .ssh putty login session.

We had an issue with the script.....got disabled and has been enabled since then. We didn't change anything in the script.

The pageant was also stopped and started.

Now, the pageant does not pass the passphrase to winscp automatically.

When I try to login thru winscp .ssh putty login, every time I need to provide a passphrase. Once I type the passphrase I can login successfully.

Thanks,
Raj

Please post a full log file showing the problem.

Hi Prikryl,
Thanks for your prompt reply.

I got it to work by downloading a newer version of pageant(ver 62). Earlier I had ver 61.

Not sure why it stopped with ver 61 though.

Thanks again,
Raj
