I set up a SFTP client on our server,our client requested username/password security. (I will change it to private key security at a later stage). Everything works, there are not setup issues and I can connect/upload/download to and from the SFTP server.
However, even with explicitly selecting Logon Type: Normal (username/password), in FileZilla, FileZilla is still trying to first get a key file:
Status: Waiting to retry... Status: Connecting to sftp.xxxxxxxxxxxxxx... Status: Skipping non-existing key file "different PPK that I user elsewhere.ppk" Response: fzSftp started, protocol_version=8 Command: open "firstname.lastname@example.org" 22 Command: Trust new Hostkey: Once Command: Pass: ******
I admit I know little about SFTP security. I know we should be using a private/public key combination and we will move to that.
This initial attempted retrieval of a PPK even though the logon type is set to normal, what is this about?
I am concerned that there is something I should know, that I don't, and that I don't even know what questions I should be asking.
