Topic "Using WinSCP 2.3.0 - User "root" can connect, but user "xxx" can't?"

Author Message



I'm using WinSCP 2.3.0 on WinXP and try to connect to a SuSE Linux 9.0 box. I can connect to my Linux box using user "root", but when I try to use user "xxx" I've got the message "network error: connection refused".
Has anybody any ideas?? What are the differences using "root" or "xxx"? Are there any additional config files (/etc/ssh/sshd_config and /etc/ssh/ssh_config)?

Regards, Uwe

You could also try the latest version, 3.4.2! Very Happy
2.3.0 is pretty old...
