Double authentication criteria

Hi all!

Due to strict security policies of my machines, I permit login only to user providing a correct user password AND authenticating with a private key.

My users using WinSCP aren't able to login because the UI doesn't let them specify both a user password and a private key: the two criteria seem to be mutually exclusive.

How can they (and me as well) solve?

Thank you

Re: Double authentication criteria

I believe that if you specify private key on the login dialog and the server requires password too, another prompt will appear during authentication.

I can remove the exclusiveness of the two boxes in the next release.

That's right

It would be a good idea, so users can cache user passwords and specify key's passphrase only
