Logging is not working for me. What am I doing wrong?
Session logging: All session output
Log file name: D:\totalcmd\plugins\wfx\sftp4tc\putty.log
What to do if the log file already exists: Always overwrite it
Options specific to SSH packet logging: (nothing checked)
My target problem:
My server documentation says that SSH is not enabled by default.
I have a default installation.
Without a log to read, I can't determine what is going on. I could use wireshark, but a log would be easier.
Thanks for any help you can provide. Ciao -- Mark
Unfortunately PuTTY will never support to store passwords (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/wishlist/remember-password.html).
Fortunately PuTTY supports private key authentication and there is PAgeant which holds your private keys in memory, already decoded, so that you can use them often without needing to type a passphrase. http://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/0.60/htmldoc/Chapter9.html#pageant.
There are also many tutorials for PAgeant.
And: all of PuTTY's connection features will work with SFTP4TC 1.3.60.* (current ist 220.127.116.11).
So I load my keys into PAgeant after computers startup and I am set.
SFTP4TC version 18.104.22.168 supports unicode characters.
The used translation is performed based on PuTTY's translation character set.
Note that you need 2 zip files:
- wfx_sftp_1_3_60_7_base_bin.zip to install the plugin
- uwfx_sftp_1_3_60_7_base_bin.zip to manually copy the unicode version to the normal plugin.
Sorry for this inconvenience, but the TCMD plugin installation does not work with a pure unicode plugin or both plugins together.
Well, it's not according to specification:bebbo wrote:SFTP4TC version 22.214.171.124 is out to fix some minor bugs.
There is only the uwfx version until someone complains.
About pluginst.inf:FS-Plugin writer's guide wrote:Note: You cannot have just the .uwfx plugin if you want to create a Unicode-only plugin! Instead, create a combined Unicode/ANSI plugin, where the ANSI functions are just empty functions returning an error.
The additional "file=" entry seems to be in violation of specification:pluginst.inf wrote:[plugininstall]

The extra "file=" entry doesn't do anything does it? But it may cause problems with future releases of Total Commander.Plugin auto-install HOWTO (TC 6.5 or newer) wrote:The file field lists the actual plugin name, which will be registered in the appropriate plugin dialog.
Thanks for the advice - guess that entry is a leftover from experimenting to get the uwfx to work. Luckily it has no effect (yet), but will be changed in the next version.The additional "file=" entry seems to be in violation of specification:

There is no "pluginst.inf" in zip file on (http://www.franke.ms/Downloads.wiki) which has same name uwfx_sftp_1_3_60_12_base_bin.zip, so use http://sftp4tc.berlios.de/ first. Inf file is no big deal this time as only 1 line is different to any recent inf file you may stilll have:

I know Christian has a SFTP plugin. I was just testing both of these for comparison. I am just posting this in case anyone tries to do a new install of the SFTP4TC plugin and uses TCPM.
Having both Ghisler SFTP (SFTPplug) and SFTP4TC installed seems to work ok I have no problems yet. There are a few differences that I noticed so I will keep using both for now. In particular:
- Change dirs where target has execute access only will just beep and not change path where as SFTPplug show "~" in an empty folder which I like better. I can then type in a cd command.
- Both plugins log you into "/" dir but SFTP4TC you can set default home dir
- SFTPPLUG lets you save password (maybe useful if not using key exchange and pageant)
We now have SFTPplug.wfx (by ghisler) and plugin_sftp.uwfx those names are very similar making discussion forums search much harder, is there any chance a better name could be made eg SFTP4TC.wlx or SFTP_putty.wlx?
I know SFTP4TC has embedded putty in the wlx file but which SSL libraries being used are they embedded are they part of putty distribution or are they separate like SFTPplug.wfx? (I don't see any SSL DLL being loaded)
As I understood there is only one - indeed working - sftp plugin: exactly described at this topic. Plugin from Ghisler - did not work for me at all and it's outdated completely.
So - there are 2 questions:
IS it a true- that there is no more SFTP plugins - except two mentioned above?
And the second question is: I do not understand HOW I can install latest version of plugin: uwfx_sftp_1_3_60_12_base_bin.zip
TС 8.01 do no see this archive as an archive with WDX plugin. And even IF i will unpack it to some dir and will say to TC - "go and USE file plugin_sftp.uwfx as WDX plugin" - it will not do that. So - how I should install it?
Do you have plans - to extend existing capabilities? Right now As I can see from some screenshots - it is impossible to make an autologin with pair <login:pass> - because in plugin there is no such field as "Password for login". But current version of putty for ex. has such feature.
