Topic "Cannot successfully connect to site"

I'm trying to connect to an FTP site that uses the Protocol Type 'FTP with TLS/SSL (AUTH TLS - Explicit'. WinSCP appears to progress past the key exchange successfully, then fails at the "Using keyboard-interactive authentication" stage, even though I know that password and even had the vendor reset it again for me. I've included the logs below:

Can anyone suggest anything to try differently? I have run out of ideas, and of course the vendor says everything is setup fine on their end. THANKS!

First you are connecting with SFTP. That's not "FTP with TLS/SSL". That's completely different protocol. So maybe that's the reason.

If you really need to connect with SFTP, note the error in the log:
Too many bad authentication attempts.
No point trying again. You have to contact your server administrator to reset your account. Or wait a while, if the lock resets automatically.

Ok, fixed the protocol issue and still was having connectivity issues. Turns out that the vendor we were try to connect to gave us the wrong User ID to authenticate with! This issue is fixed now. Thanks for the help!
