SFTP Authentication Failed, Need to retrieve password
[Solved] RE: SFTP Authentication Failed, Need to retrieve password

I am using Filezilla to access SFTP, for some way, i cannot access with the root password, i did checked the /root/passwords.txt file and it matches the one i input to login using root as a username.

When i try to connect, i get Authentication Failed. Unfortunately...  Sad

Status:    Waiting to retry...
Status:    Connecting to
Response:    fzSftp started, protocol_version=8
Command:    open "" 22
Command:    Pass: ****************
Error:    Authentication failed.
Error:    Critical error: Could not connect to server

That is exactly what i get now. I did checked the file, but still cant connect to SFTP, any idea? Thanks in advance for your time and attention.

I don't know much about SFTP so might not be much help here.

I have just connected to my server using FileZilla and the SFTP protocol, using the root user - no problems that I can see. Are you sure you're using the correct password? Or maybe you need to update FileZilla?

Status: Connecting to
Response: fzSftp started, protocol_version=8
Command: open "" 22
Command: Pass: **********
Status: Connected to
Status: Retrieving directory listing...
Command: pwd
Response: Current directory is: "/root"
Status: Directory listing of "/root" successful

For reference, my FileZilla version is 3.35.1 and I am connecting via a LAN only. Maybe the interwebs or a firewall is blocking something?

Thanks given by: wormsunited
