Topic "Server Refuse Our Key"

Author Message



I've spent two days on this issue and could not figure it out... Hope somebody could help me with it...

I created a key pair by using PuttyGen. The public key is given to the host admin, and I use the private key to connect to the host via WinSCP GUI (WinSCP.exe) and it is working fine; I can connect to the host without any problems.

The issue is that I could not use it via Command line ( -- it throws server refuse our key error everytime. This happens the same when I try to connect via SSIS using .net assemly.

Would anybody know what is going on and how to fix it? What am I missing? What drives me crazy is I can connect via the WinSCP GUI (WinSCP.exe) but not via command line (

Thanks so much!
