Using the plugin with TC 9.50 Beta 2, the caption of the properties window now shows chinease characters (i guess its chinease) instead of german characters.
They are Chinese characters, for sure, but meaningless, which often indicates some encoding error.

Yes, this looks like an encoding error. I will ckeck it.

I tried setting-up the sftp plugin for total commander to access our new server. I am able to access the server. Unfortunately, I get the following error when downloading or uploading:

SCP download error: SCP_PROTOCOL(28)

I searched a bit, but nothing that really helped. Is this a problem with TC settings? Or is it related to our server and should I contact our system administrator?

This means that your server doesn't have the SCP protocol enabled. Please open the connection settings (Alt+Enter on the connection name) and disable SCP.

However, when using WinSCP, I am using SCP since SFTP does not work...

Maybe WinSCP detects automatically that SCP doesn't work? What does its log show?

I started to use the SFTP plugin recently. Overall, it works for me, but I have some questions:

Q1. The Wiki (https://www.ghisler.ch/wiki/index.php?title=Secure_FTP_plugin) sounds like `libcurl` needs to be installed? Is it really the case?

Q2. I have a server that uses Google 2FA that results in a 2FA verification code prompt on every SSH login (after, for example, SSH key negotiation). I could not set up SFTP plugin to work with this server at all. Is it supported? If not, can you do a feature request to support this?

Q3. It looks likes moves to/from SFTP are not supported: moves (F6) result in files copied. Can you do a feature request to support them?

Thanks in advance!

Q1: Only if you use Windows XP or older. On newer Windows versions, the plugin uses a newer libssh dll based on Windows encryption functions.

Q2: The server must be configured to support "keyboard-interactive" login but not "password" login. Why? The plugin prefers password login, but only "keyboard-interactive" allows to ask for additional login data. So if your server is configured to support "password" login, then login will fail.

Q3: This is indeed not supported because it's risky - some servers may report a successful transfer even for partial file transfers.
