Continual "Using Keyboard authentication"

Since migrating from 4.1.8 to 4.2.1 (just minutes ago) I've been prompted to click "OK" twice when using Keyboard Authentication.

Is there any way to say that I'll always click "OK", so don't ask?

Re: Continual "Using Keyboard authentication"

So you are prompted to enter a password by keyboard authentication, you do not fill anything and pres OK, right? Before you clicked OK once, now you have to do that twice? Can you post a log file?

I'm not asked for a password - I saved that in the Stored Session.

But when the signon reaches "Authenticating with pre-entered password" the bottom 2cm of the window changes to:

Using keyboard-interactive authentication
[OK] [Cancel] [Help]

Where would I find the log?

<---- Here pop ups window with "using keyboard auth." text and no real prompt, just OK,Cancel,Help. I press OK and then ---->

Re: Continual "Using Keyboard authentication"

Dialog "Using keyboard-interactive authentication" is displayed again, after the password was entered manually, and pressed OK button. It is very annoying.
Is it possible to turn off this behaviour with an option?

Your words mean that in v4.2.2 I will not get the "Using keyboard-interactive authentication" dialog?

Right.

Well, I downloaded v4.2.2 (Build 480), and still asks for pressing OK :(

How can I disable it???

I have the same problem in 4.2.2, any workaround?

Got it when upgrading from previous version. I'm using a winscp script that has worked for a long time (using .ini file stored pass).

I'm attaching new error- and old working log below.

Any workaround?
Can I install an old version of winscp (and use the new migrated winscp.ini file)?

Thanks in advance

Hmpf, today, an update to 4.2.2 (480) but this Bug is not fixed. :cry:

I "hate" this "press OK" Dialog since months.

Please fix this.

Exactly, but there is more "trouble" because if you use background-transfers, you have to "apply" each "thread".

Just to reiterate what is already mentioned in the tracker:

WinSCP behaves correctly, it display an empty authentication prompt, just as requested by your SSH servers. Obviously it is bug in your servers. Until 4.1.9 WinSCP was resistant to the bug and just ignored the empty prompts. Until the this behaviour is introduced back to WinSCP (in 4.1.3), either have your server fixed or downgrade to stable 4.1.9.

If it is that big issue for you, I just do not understand why all of you use beta release if it does not do what you want, when the latest stable release does...

Sure, thats right.

I declare that that if people find a bug in a software which they love, try it daily update. :D

I use newest version 4.2.9. It seems that it goes through empty prompt, but stoped on infromation from server about last login.
