Topic "Password box in 3.3"

Author Message

For some reason, a dialogue box comes up and asks for a password when starting v3.3, even though the password is saved. Even if I put nothing in the box and click OK it will still connect. Any ideas?

do you happen to have an @ in you password? same problem here Wink using FreeBSD...

for some reason I don't have this problem in linux, maybe because that one is running the latest version of openssh... might by BSD related though...

prikryl: I posted a topic on this a while ago... just to let you know, the problem seems to not exist in linux with openssh 3.7.1_p2

and indeed bob, if you click OK without reentering the password, authentication still succeeds... weird Wink

I've had a same problem few days with OpenSSH server on Sourceforge (and only with this server). I was not able to find a cause. Several days ago, the problem disapeared and it never happened since. I was not able to find out, if there were any upgrades at the time.

I'm new with using WinSCP, but found myself reading the forums because I too have the same problem.

Under SSH Authentication, if I uncheck 'Attept "keyboard-interactive" authentication (SSH2)' -- I think it fixes it.

Try it and see.
