Disconnected: Unable to authenticate

Hi.

I want to connect to server with scp protocol and I can do this by WinScp.exe.
But c# code does not work =(

username = "root" and there's no password

Here's my code:

// Setup session options
var sessionOptions = new SessionOptions
{
    Protocol = Protocol.Scp,
    HostName = "10.0.6.10",
    UserName = "root",
    GiveUpSecurityAndAcceptAnySshHostKey = true,
};

using (var session = new Session()
        {
            SessionLogPath = Path.GetFullPath(@".\WinScpSessionLog.txt"),
            DebugLogPath =  Path.GetFullPath(@".\WinScpDebugLog.txt")
         })
{
    // Connect
    session.Open(sessionOptions);
}

Here is SessionLog

I tried to set password as empty string in SessionOptions - does not work.

Please tell me how to connect with "root" and no password.
I say again - I can connect with WinScp.exe

Re: Disconnected: Unable to authenticate

So how do you authenticate in GUI? I assume you do not really allow root access with no authentication at all.

And I hope you really know, what you are doing, when using .GiveUpSecurityAndAcceptAnySshHostKey.

The difference is that GUI asks for a password and I leave the password field empty, click on connect btn and connection happens
and I see file viewer.

GUI do this :
! 2015-02-09 16:38:33.239 Using username "root".
. 2015-02-09 16:38:33.279 Prompt (7, SSH password, , &Password: )
. 2015-02-09 16:38:34.918 Sent password
. 2015-02-09 16:38:34.960 Access granted

But code logs:
! 2015-02-03 11:50:28.775 Using username "root".
. 2015-02-03 11:50:28.776 Prompt (7, SSH password, , &Password: )
. 2015-02-03 11:50:28.776 Disconnected: Unable to authenticate

And I hope you really know, what you are doing, when using .GiveUpSecurityAndAcceptAnySshHostKey.
Yes, this is ok.

Also I can connect and send file by pscp.exe using:
pscp.exe -scp -pw "" C:\Users\user1\Desktop\333.prj root@10.0.6.10:/mnt/ufs/root

So, I realy mean that I have access and there is no password or maybe empty password, but with some reason that does not work on winScp dll :(

ps. sry for my english

I have sent you an email with a development version of WinSCP to address you have used to register on this forum.

For benefit of others, as discussed over email with Victoria already, this won't help. Improvements are needed to WinSCP to allow authentication with an empty password.
