Description (last modified by )
FileZilla 184.108.40.206 on Windows 7 seems to start loading keys from Pageant before it loads keys specified in Settings/SFTP. If there are more than 4 keys in Pageant, remote SSH login fails with an error message due to too many failed authentication attempts.
A suitable resolution for this problem may be the follow two changes/procedures:
- Find a match for a Settings/SFTP specified keys using Pageant, then use those keys from Pageant.
- If that fails, attempt to load specified keys in Settings/SFTP without Pageant. (Pageant is not needed for password less keys.)
The ability to specify keys in Site Manager per entry (session) is necessary to enable working with many sessions and keys. This prevents loading too many Settings/SFTP specified keys when there are more than 5 coexisting sessions each with a different key.
The procedure mentioned below (1) still applies.
Behavior tested with remote SSHd versions:
