Topic "Access denied error, winSCP + freesshd"

Author Message


Hi All,
Im having issue trying to connect to a specific ssh server, getting "access denied" error.

i have 3 machines, A, B, C.
A is the ssh client machine and has WinSCP installed, the 2 other machines have freeSSHd installed on them and used as SSH server.

the connection from A->B is working and i managed to move files as expected.
The connection from A->C always getting access denied.
The configuration on B and C are the same, same username and password - tried different username as well.
i made sure that the communication between the servers are not blocked by pinging from A to C.
windows firewall is turned off.
on C's freeSSHd there no ip blacklisted, as mentioned before the config are the same as B.
tried with putty as well, and same issue, unable to connect to machine (access denied), but able to connect to machine B.

Can you connect with any other SFTP/SSH client?


fixed it by uninstall > server reboot > install.
cant tell what was the issue.
