password is not saved.

Hello,
since i've upgraded from v2.0.0 to v2.3.0 I've noticed that although I've entered a password in the savedsession-login screen, I have to enter the password every time I start a new session. :(
Is there a methode to save the password permanently?
regards
Piet.

At opening screen select (don't doubleclick) the connection you want to use and load it.
Change your password.
Go to stored session and save.

Decription above is correct. But it have not changed since 2.0 beta, so I wonder what is bossie's problem. Does it work now?

Hello prikryl and Askocc,

Martin I've changed my profile.
The e-mailadress was changed lately, and I mistakenly submitted my old adress.

No it doesn't work, Ive used the procedure Askocc advised and tried it at 2 separate systems.
Both the same result, I have to give the password in a separate password box.

Bye Piet.

Additional Info:
Both mentioned servers use ssh2 and I've found a server using ssh1 ahd then the methode works fine!
So it seems to be a problem concentrating to ssh2? I guess.

Are you out of suggestions?
Hey, give me some time, I cannot be on-line 24-hours a day, 7-days in week :-)

What does password input box ask you for? (label of password field). It's possible that your SSH2 servers do not ask you for a password, but for other mean of authentication (so called keyboard-interactive authentication, see 'authentication' tab of login dialog).

Please post a log file, it should be clear from it.

Hi Martin,
don't mean to rush you!

The question is "Enter password"
I've tried both with and without the keyboard-interactive authentication.

you've asked for a logfile, well here it is. :lol:

Re: password is not saved

This is starting to be mysterious :-)

  • First, make sure that you've spelled your pasword correctly (I believe you did).
  • Are there any special characters in your password (aparts from characters a-z and numbers)? Only thing I can imagine now, is that WinSCP spoils such characters when saving to registry. But nobody ever reported this before.
  • No other idea yet :-(
