Trying to sync files to SSH machine from Windows7 receiving error message

Hi,

I have been trying to sync my files to an SSH machine (Solaris 11) from a Windows 7 box, keep receiving the error “Connection Failed: Algorithm fails”. I am capable to make a connection with psftp.exe (putty sftp) so the connection (firewall) is fine, just can’t get I worked.

Anybody some tips?

Thanks.

Hi Norman,

It appears as if putty sftp is trying to connect to the remote server with compression option enabled and possibly the remote server does not support compression algorithm being used.

So one solution would be to connect to the remote server with compression disabled, that would work. In case is if you have administrative access to the remote Solaris machine, then you may as well as installing the compression libraries missing at that end.

I hope this post helps you fix the issue you have encountered.

Hello,

To my knowledge this error message signifies that SSH server Program has prohibited set of encryption algorithms available, and the SSH library do not support these algorithms.

What you can do is run SSH daemon with debug logging active.

Or check ‘Use installed sftp…’ which uses psftp.exe to set up communication with the server.

I hope this might help you with the problem.
