Hi Team,
We have a script to login to remote host using public/private key authentication with the private key protected with passphrase (WinsSCP V 5.1.4).

When we try to login and after inputing details like Host Name, User Name, Password, Private Key File, then "Login" button click, passphrase is again prompted though we already provided the details in the first screen.

I am using the pSFTP command as below:-
psftp -i PRIVATE_KEY_1234.ppk -v -l XXUSERNAME -pw XXPASSWRD -b psftpscript.script -bc
PSFTP_issue_screens.doc (97.5 KB) Private file

Description: (none)

Please attach a full session log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate the session log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.
