I am using PuTTY and the Pageant with great success. I installed build 086 of WinSCP awhile back and I have never been able to get the WinSCP client to recognize the fact that I have valid keys loaded in Pageant. I say this because plink, pscp and psftp seem to have no problem in this regard. Meanwhile, WinSCP continous to ask me for a session password, ignoring Pageant and any key files that I point the client via the "Basic" config tab. What am I doing wrong? Upgrading to build 106 did not help.

WinSCP can load keys from Pageant, but currently only SSH1 keys (not SSH2). Are you using these keys?

Lates version of Putty/Pageant also support other key formats. I'm not sure whether thay are compatible with WinSCP, I have not yet time enoung to test.

I've just started to upgrade WinSCP to code of Putty 0.53b. As soon as I finish this, WinSCP should support all keys that Putty do.

Yes, I see that now, I am using all "dsa" keys. That must be it. Thanks

WinSCP 2.1 already supports DSA keys.
