I am using Rebex Tiny SFTP Server. I am able to connect on passing username and password. Also working fine by passing username,password and privatekey.


But issue occurs on passing username and private key.
No suitable authentication method is supported. Supported methods: 'password,keyboard-interactive'.

Update: Private/public key authentication was released in version 1.0.2. You can download it from and give it a try.

A beta version of Rebex Tiny SFTP server with support for private/public key authentication is already available. Please download it and give it a try.
It will be included in one of the next Tiny Sftp Server releases.

You will need to put your user's public keys into the directory specified by the 'userPublicKeyDir' value in the config file.

 <add key="userPublicKeyDir" value="userKeys"/>
