After being warned about the embedded URL I removed it and posted #19064 that is more up to date than this one.

WinSCP Version 5.5.3 (Build 4214) (OS 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 - Windows 7 Ultimate) has winSCP listed as a supported FTP/SSL client but only partially supported as an FTP/SSH client. My application is VB.NET. What follows demonstrates this.

This works on another server but not on MOVEit
.Protocol = WinSCP.Protocol.Sftp
.HostName = My.Settings.Host.Trim
.UserName = My.Settings.SAPUID.Trim
.SshHostKeyFingerprint = My.Settings.HostFingerprint.Trim
.SshPrivateKeyPath = My.Settings.PrivateKeyFile.Trim

This works on MOVEit but I'd rather not have an exposed password
.Protocol = WinSCP.Protocol.Ftp
.FtpSecure = WinSCP.FtpSecure.Implicit
.HostName = My.Settings.Host.Trim
.UserName = My.Settings.SAPUID.Trim
.Password = My.Settings.Password.Trim

The server owner is moving from the one that works with SFTP to MOVEit. The private keys are identical on the two servers. The public keys have a PUB extension. Here's the failure point in a Debug 1 log:
. 2015-03-19 13:47:20.735 Offer of public key accepted
! 2015-03-19 13:47:20.735 Authenticating with public key "rsa-key-20140528"
. 2015-03-19 13:47:20.906 Sent public key signature
. 2015-03-19 13:47:20.906 Waiting for the server to continue with the initialization
. 2015-03-19 13:47:20.922 Detected network event
! 2015-03-19 13:47:20.922 Server refused public-key signature despite accepting key!
. 2015-03-19 13:47:20.953 Server refused public-key signature despite accepting key!
. 2015-03-19 13:47:20.953 Prompt (7, SSH password, , &Password: )

Have you had any contact with Ipswitch regarding this? I mention the PUB extension because (Googling) that may have solved similar problems on other servers. I have asked for it to be removed. That may take a couple of days.

Could it have something to do with the private key permissions? I've had that cause problems.

Thanks in advance.
