Having troubles with SFTP (2 posts)

    I’m trying out my server’s new SFTP certificate and functionality. It works fine with Transmit, Filezilla and SmartFTP. I’m trying it out with Fetch though, and each time, I get a “SFTP connection could not be opened because the server rejected the password” message. There’s not an issue with the password – which works when I use Fetch’s regular FTP functionality.

    My IP address is:

    My “Remote Login” sharing has been enabled.

    Any ideas?

    Hi Katya,

    Could you please post the contents of the Fetch transcript when you try to make a connection to this server? We'll take a look at it and try to figure out what the problem is.

    To do this, first try to make a connection, then choose "Fetch Transcript" from the Window menu, copy the contents, and post them here.
