Description (last modified by anshnd)

This is a regression with builds 6.0.4 as well as 5.4.4. I had to revert to 5.2.2 which works as expected.

The problem:

I only have a password to authenticate against this SSH server. Command-line ssh used to give this error because it tries other client certificates before the server gives up. I had since then changed ~/.ssh/config to have these two lines

Host the.host.name.com
    PreferredAuthentications password

command-line ssh works fine. CyberDuck used to work fine but upgrading to latest build broke this.

Please double check your bookmark settings does not have a private key selected for public key authentication that is tried first and may lead to an authentication failure if the server has limited the number of auth attempts.
