I was presented with this error:
Server responded “No further authentication methods available.”
No more authentication methods available.
when trying to connect to a secure site using F-Secure SSH Client 5.3.
F-Secure SSH Client allows you to control a remote Linux machine running SSH (Secure Shell) server using a Windows machine. One of the main differences between F-Secure SSH Client and PUTTY, another popular SSH Client application, is the support for File Transfer over SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol)
Some solutions asked for changes in server configuration files, but I knew that was not my problem because my ssh client was working fine just days before.
To solve this problem, or at least the source of the problem, I needed to add “Keyword Interactive” authentication to my profile. To do that follow this steps:
- Open Settings
- Profile » Connection » Authentication
- On Authentication Methods, click the “New (Insert)” icon
- From the drop-down, choose “Keyword Interactive“
After that, I was able to go a bit further, enough to get a message from the server that my password had expired and was prompted to change it. After that I had a successful connection.
