sftp broken by recent updates to debian testing?

Hi,

I am using latest winscp (5.7). I use it to copy files up to my debian server. This is running debian testing (jessie), and after I upgraded with apt-get at the weekend I started getting transfer errors.

I am guessing that this update to libssl2 is the culprit:
http://metadata.ftp-master.debian.org/changelogs/main/libs/libssh2/libssh2_1.4.3-4.1_changelog

I get 'Host is not communicating for more than 15 seconds. Still waiting...'.

I assume your Debian uses OpenSSH server for SSH/SFTP, right? I do not think libssh2 is used by OpenSSH.

Oh well. It was the only recent update in /var/log/dpkg.log with 'ssh' in it:

Please attach a full log file on Debug 2 logging level showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.

Thanks for the log. But I haven't found any clue there. It looks like the server stops communicating.
Btw, didn't you upgrade WinSCP about the same time the problem was introduced?

You know, I think I did. I will try reverting when I have a moment (and am at home).

[of course, I am sure the excellent winscp software would not be at fault!]

Nice Mr Prikryl has fixed my problem, and I have donated some money to him to show my appreciation. I am bragging about it on this forum to encourage others :-D
