Topic "Cannot script a connection!!"

Author Message



When I interactively use WinSCP to SFTP (with SCP fallback) to a SUSE host, it works fine. However when I try to do /console, I get:


winscp> open <host>
Searching for host...
Connecting to host...
Username: <xxx>
Using keyboard-interactive authentication.
Password: <xxx>
Using keyboard-interactive authentication.
Connection has been unexpectedly closed. Server sent command exist status 0.
Authentication failed.


why does this happen? Passwords, everything is right.

Please post a full log file showing the problem.

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. For posting extensive logs you may use pastebin or similar application. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you may email it to me. You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile. Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have emailed the log.
