(1.9.8) SFTP not working?

Our server was switched from normal ftp to sftp. But I
cannot login with FileZilla 1.9.8 using 'FTP with explicit
encryption'. All I get is following:
Status: Connecting to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:22 ...
Status: Connected with xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:22. Waiting for
(nothing happens for about 5 minutes...)
Error: Timeout detected!
But when I use another client from
works... A bug in FileZilla or maybe a server mis-
configuration or something totally different?
BTW: 'FTP with implicit encryption' doesn't work at all
and normal FTP says the same as with explicit

Using my nice Win98SE maschine I always get:

trace log of refused connection

Using FileZilla 22.214.171.124 I still cannot connect to that SFTP
server. I've included a trace log. There is a typo in error
message "Error: FzSFtp.exe did not respone, terminating
connection." I think it should be 'respond'.

Could you please enable "Trace messages from the ftp
engine" in the debug settings and post the message log after
a failed connection attempt?
Can you connect to the Sourceforge SFTP servers?

Good work - well done! It works!
But there is still a minor issue concerning the 'reconnect'
feature. If I enter a wrong password and get rejected
using 'reconnect' won't ask for the password again.
You were trying to connect to an SSH server using SSL. It's a
little bit confusing but SFTP is FTP over SSH, whereas FTPS
is FTP over SSL.
FileZilla 1.9.8 does not support SFTP. But the next version,
1.9.9, will. I've already published beta versions of 1.9.9 with
SFTP support, you can download the latest one here:
