Sftp login fail

asked Jan 11, 2016 by miloslavbeno (130 points)


We are using Rebex for our publishing. One client has reported he's unable to login via SFTP.

He's connecting to FreeBSD 10.2 / ssh 6.6.1p1

  • via User name/Password: Fail:
    "Interactive authentication cannot continue due to missing request handler"
  • via Private key: Success

If he connects via Filezilla with login/password there is no problem.

Any help would be appreciated.


Applies to: Rebex SFTP

Are you able to connect using SftpWinFormClient sample?

This looks like the SFTP/SSH server is trying to ask the user for some additional information, or it's trying to ask for the password using a less common prompt (we added support for one addition prompt in Rebex SFTP 2016 R1, by the way).

Implementing a custom AuthenticationRequest event should solve this (see SftpWinFormClient sample's source code for another AuthenticationRequest event example).
