SFTP with Private Key not possible

Post by EternalStudent »

Hello Forum,
I am using BestSync 2017 Ultimate Edition since now with no issue. It is running on a Windows Server 2012 R2 Environment.
I have installed OpenSSH and the Services are Running properly. When I want to make a new Task for sftp and choosing the private key and save it, I get following error from ChilkatLog:

Can someone help me out here?
I would like to notice that it is working properly on this Server with the Filezilla Software.

We have used a new SFTP library to build BestSync, please download and install BestSync 2021 (Ver16.0.1.5) to see if the problem can be resolved.

It is connecting to the host. So it looks like it is working.
I wrote to risefly@risefly.com for a one week Test Licence before I buy the upgrade.
May I have it today?

After you installing a new version, you will have 7 days for evaluating all the features of BestSync.
