WinSCP and Pageant

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.

Re: WinSCP and Pageant

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.
