Topic "Intermittent error "gsskex integrity failure""

Hi,

I have just recently build a new Sun T5220 server with Solaris 10 running SSH-2.0-Sun_SSH_1.1. Unfortunately i'm receiving these strange errors when trying to connect with WinSCP using SFTP:

"gsskex integrity failure"

The errors don't always occur - sometimes it works fine.

Is there a log file or some other diagnostic I can send over that might help isolate the cause?

Many thanks in advance.

What version of WinSCP are you using?

Hi again,

It looks like i've found a workaround for this. Edit the session and go to "Key Exchange" and move the "Diffie-Hellman group xxxx" lines to the top. This seems to fix the problem.

Cheers,
Ed

I get the same error and your fix solves the problem in GUI mode. How do I fix it when i script a connection?

Thanks

Please read FAQ. If that does not help, come back.

Hi - might be something to do with DNS checking?

I got the same error as the previous Guest using Script connection and I'm not able to solve it after some research.
Here is the command.bat what I tried :

option batch on
option confirm off
open sftp://User@dns.name.of.the.server:22 -hostkey="ssh-dss 1024 11:22:33:44:63:03:ae:b3:3c:bf:c7:14:d0:67:be:6c" -privatekey="C:\PathoftheKey\Key.ppk" cd /RemoteServerpath/
option transfer binary
get FileName.XML C:\PathWhereTheFileWillbePut\File.XML
close
exit

=> This is OK. But I have the famous : 2012-10-09 13:42:36.183 gsskex integrity failure in the log.


So I tried the following :

option batch on
option confirm off
open sftp://User@dns.name.of.the.server:22 -hostkey="ssh-dss 1024 11:22:33:44:63:03:ae:b3:3c:bf:c7:14:d0:67:be:6c" -privatekey="C:\PathoftheKey\Key.ppk" -rawsettings="KEX=dh-gex-sha1,gssapi-gex,gssapi-group14,gssapi-group1,dh-group14-sha1,dh-group1-sha1,WARN" cd /RemoteServerpath/
option transfer binary
get FileName.XML C:\PathWhereTheFileWillbePut\File.XML
close
exit

=> This does not work... I exits the console without leaving any message in the .log file.

I found the -rawsettings option by generating a new seesion and checking the .ini file which gave me the following:
[Sessions\User@dns.name.of.the.server]
HostName=dns.name.of.the.server
KEX=dh-gex-sha1,gssapi-gex,gssapi-group14,gssapi-group1,dh-group14-sha1,dh-group1-sha1,WARN
UserName=User
PublicKeyFile=C:\PathoftheKey\Key.ppk

Any clues anyone?
NB: I changed the files and server names/path but the script has been tested and works well except for the gsskex integrity failure for this specific server

I can provide you the full connection log of the gsskex integrity failure (with the script that has NOT -rawsettings parameter).

I saw it seems to be using the "Diffie-Hellman group exchange" algorithm for key exchange, so I might be wrong about the source of the issue...

Here is the full log:

Any help?


FYI I updated my WinSCP Version to 5.1.0 and this solved the problem.
I Hope this helps
