Topic "Can't connect when I use my keys"

Hello All,

I have a bunch of linux server running debian and I just can't get WinSCP build 110 to connect via keys. When I allow password auth it works fine. Basiclly I point out the key and it keeps asking only for the password not the passphrase. It seem to only want to do passwords

Debian 3.0
OpenSSH_3.4p1 Debian 1:3.4p1-1

here are some logs.

Thanks
Hartman

As you may see in log, your key format is not supported by WinSCP. Either create new keys using keygen tool from Simon Tatham distributed in installation package or wait few more days for new release of WinSCP. It should support your key format.

Thanks prikryl,

Thanks I knew it was a problem with keys I just did not realize it was the way the key was formated.

Thanks
