Broken usage of .ppk auth keys #11887
Upgrading to Version 8.0.0 (upgraded via Mac App Store) has broken usage of .ppk auth keys for me. Can no longer log in to several servers that have been long set up and have been working fine until the upgrade. I am still able to log in to these servers on other tools, using the exact same credentials, so the problem is definitely Cyberduck. I think the .ppk filetype is the issue, since my server using a different key type is still working fine on Cyberduck.
It may be worth noting that my server keys are stored OUTSIDE of the standard .ssh/ folder. Version 8.0.0 successfully fixed my previous ticket (#11782) that key locations outside of the .ssh/ folder were not remembered properly on Mac and these keys had to be relocated upon each server login which was tedious. It is possible that the fix for this ticket could be related to this new bug.
Login fails with message: "Login failed. Exhausted available authentication methods. Invalid passphrase. Please contact your web hosting service provider for assistance."
Interestingly, after failing, it seems to "forget" the key location that I input, no matter how many times i keep reinputting it. (see screenshot)
Many thanks if you can look into it.
The text was updated successfully, but these errors were encountered:
I can confirm this issue on windows 10 with a newly updated 8.0.0, all servers using .ppks now fail to authenticate.
ssh logins to those servers with the same key still work, and actually show the cyberduck attempts as failed logins on entry to bash
can also confirm that the auth dialog also unsets the saved .ppk location every time i try again.
have had to swap to filezilla for now, without an easy way to roll back cyberduck.
If it helps narrow anything down my .ppk is stored in a google drive folder, and I've recently updated to the new google drive desktop app that does handle files differently.
edit: rolled back to 7.10.2 and they all work again
hi sduncan, you can roll back using the installer executable on the changelog page: https://cyberduck.io/changelog/

What is the key type you are using? Can you please share the first line of a failing .ppk key? With

I switched back to the older version and it's now working. I haven't tried re-installing 8. These are the first two lines:
