Issue with SCP and WinSCP Clients

Post by Basskilla1984 »

Server is Windows 2012R2

This STOPPED WORKING this MAY, and can't figure out why.

I am trying to connect SCP client from CentOS ANS WinSCP from Windows and getting the same Wing FTP Server Error:
[02] Mon, 18 Sep 2017 17:21:06 (0000003) Connected from (local address, port 22)
[01] Mon, 18 Sep 2017 17:21:06 (0000003) The user ImpervaSCP started SSH authentication.

[02] Mon, 18 Sep 2017 17:21:09 (0000003) Closed session, disconnected from The reason is: Failed to create the ssh channel.

Error from SCP CLient:
[root@SS-MX1-12 ~]# scp install.log TestSCP@
TestSCP@'s password:
exec request failed on channel 0
lost connection

Error from the WinSCP:

Authentication log (see session log for details):
Using username "TestSCP".

Authentication failed.

Filezilla works for SFTP.
SFTP Command works in CentOS
WinSCP works with SFTP protocol

The reason why I HAVE to use SCP is that there is a security software we own that uses SCP copy operation ONLY and is not working with Wing FTP.

What I Tried:
1. Installing as Administrator
2. Dumming down ciphers
3. Setting the "Everyone" user to "Fullcontrol" on the target directory
4. Installing new RSA-1 256 certificate

Nothing works. Please help!

WingFTP does not support SCP protocol, you can use sftp command instead of scp command.
