Cyberduck Mountain Duck CLI

#7536 closed defect (fixed)

Partial authentication failure

Reported by: penguinzx Owned by: dkocher
Priority: normal Milestone: 4.4.1
Component: sftp Version: 4.4
Severity: blocker Keywords: SFTP, Authentication
Cc: Architecture:


When trying to connect over SFTP to an a server running freeFTPd using password authentication, I am prompted for the initial password, then I receive a window confirming "Partial Authentication Success" which then prompts me for a user name and password again. When I enter the credentials in this window, the window goes away, and nothing else happens. There is no further error message, but the connection is not established.

Tested on Cyberduck 4.2.1, this issue doesn't exist. I can connect to the same server with the same credentials without receiving the "Partial Authentication Success" prompt. The connection also works with the Filezilla client version 3.7.1 This has been observed with Cyberduck 4.4 running on OSX 10.7.5(Lion), and Windows 7.

Is it possible to get a temporary account on this server for testing?

I can provide a temporary account for testing, however I will need the public IP address you wish to connect from to grant you firewall access. Please contact me via email for server information and credentials: penguinzx AT
