SFTP plugin: can't connect to server

Post by *Stoneboy » 2019-05-11, 06:10 UTC

Hi,

first, thank you very much for Total Commander. I hope that I´ve changed some setting somewhere without realizing it, but since yesterday, I can´t connect to the remote server using the SFTP plugin. When I try using a different program (WinSCP) or on my laptop using the SFTP plugin, it works :(.

The connection isn´t established and is terminated with the error: Unable to exchange ssh keys.

I´ve tried reinstalling the plugin and the entire totalcmd, didn´t solve the issue. I use Windows 10 1903 (recently updated, but it worked on it before it just stopped yesterday morning).

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Sounds like the server side changed encryption algorithms to one not supported by the SFTP plugin. Try updating the plugin. If this doesn't help, you can try the one using OpenSSL dlls from here:

and then install the latest OpenSSL dlls from here:
