This seems like your server is offline. Consult the administrator of your server.

I am having the same problem, though I can log in all day long with Putty and ZOC. Any ideas about what to look at would be appreciated.

Thanks, Dan

I found a problem with ZoneAlarm blocking my WinSCP traffic. Fixed that and I can now make contact with the remote server. Now I get a error stating:


In key mode I get the following failure.

1) Searching for host
2) Connecting to host
3) Authenticating...
4) Password requested
5) Starting the session ...

Error Message:

Error skipping startup message. Your shell is probably incompatible with the application "BASH is recommended"
Connection has been unexpectedly closed. Server sent command exit status 2.

What is status 2 saying?

Still no good.

It looks like the session is established and then some data transmitted towrd the WRT54G (V3 hardware, Talsiman v1.0.5, client mode) causes it to close the session. This is repeatable from three different PCs, two on the WLAN side and one of the LAN side. Somebody have a clue, cause I sure don't!!! Could someone post what a successful log file of a key gen login looks like?

Here is a printout of the current WinSCP log file:

BTW, I am also having this problem... this is not the log file that you are looking for. Confused

I am able to log in to one of my domains but not the other. Both are on the same server. I don't get it...?

Hi Crystina,

Check and see if you have any firewalls between you and the server you are trying to access. AS you can see above, ZoneAlarm was causing a problem since I had Putty installed and then added WinSCP, ZoneAlarm must have thought something was wrong. As soon as I moved my Firewall protection from High to Medium, I could see the server, but I still can't connect. The traffic capture I did shows the remote server doing a reset of the connection at the TCP level, right after I finish sending the key????

What is status 2 saying?

It says nothing Smile
Have you tried SFTP instead of SCP?

Hi prikryl,

I am trying to use WinSCP to access a WRT54G running Sveasoft's Talisman firmware which only supports SCP. Why would I be able to log in using Putty and not WinSCP, since you built it on Putty Question

I don't understand why the SSHD (Dropbear) is closing the connection and I have been trying to get support from Sveasoft as well.

I will update you if they say anything worth while.

You are able to login. But your server probably does not conform to requirements WinSCP have on server in SCP mode. Have you tried to force /bin/bash (or /bin/sh) shell on SCP tab of login dialog?

Hi prikryl,

I tried it last night and it worked perfectly. The Sveasoft software uses Busybox and it includes "ash". I forced the shell to "/bin/ash/ and it works flawlessly now.



Thank you for the excellent program and the fine support.

this is maybe due to some security issue with your internet connection. Are you under a corporate VPN?

OK THIS WORKED FOR ME I HOPE IT WORKS FOR YOU. I ALWAYS GET THIS ERROR MESSAGE "Network error: Connection timed out"

I ACCIDENTLY FOUND THIS OUT, FIRST OPEN SSH, THEN OPEN UP WINSCP, THEN YOUR GOING TO LOG IN TO YOUR IPOD OR IPHONE, AFTER YOU HIT THE LOGIN BUTTON IT SHOULD BE LOOKING FOR YOUR IPOD OR IPHONE, THEN HURRY AND GO INTO YOUR APP STORE APPLICATION ON YOUR IPOD, THIS SHOULD CAUSE YOUR WINSCP TO SOME HOW START THE CONNECTION GOOD LUCK HOPE THIS WORKS CAUSE IT WORKS FOR ME.Very Happy
Guest




wow, the app store thing worked for me.

Ok, when connecting to WinScp on your PC side, open App Store on your handheld...It will connect to your WinSCP instantly, then close app store and never go back

i downloaded Ping! for iphone for free, got it stuck at connecting,
then i bought the Ping! version but that didnt fix the problem,
i read that i had to enter my iphone via WINSCP to change some settings on Notifications since i have a jailbroken device,

BUT WINSCP STILL DOESNT RECOGNIZE THE DEVICE, WHAT SHOULD I PUT INTO WINSCP?
