#8380 closed defect (duplicate)

Exhausted authentication methods

Reported by: cybergoose Owned by: dkocher
Priority: normal Milestone: 4.6.1
Component: sftp Version: 4.6
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Architecture: Intel
Platform: Mac OS X 10.10


I cannot connect to certain servers using SFTP and private key with Cyberduck v4.5.2 or 4.6. Other servers are OK.

Error message begins "Exhausted available authentication methods". Image attached.

There are no messages in the Cyberduck log drawer or on the system log files.

There is no problem if I use Cyberduck v4.0.2 but this requires Java 1.6.

It seems installing Java 1.6 causes headaches for other software - I'm using OS X 10.10 Yosemite.

I am friendly with the server admins so can find out the sshd config etc. if that would be useful for solving this.

From the error message Unknown object in getInstance… it looks like there is an issue parsing the private key. Can you create a new key pair that shows the same error and attach it to this ticket.
