sFTP Plugin and TC 7.56a

Post by *chbwien » 2011-02-08, 15:36 UTC

Using the current sFTP Plugin 1.0 moving (F6) files, a copy operation is done, not a move operation. This worked with the previous putty-based plugin.

Mal angenommen, du drückst Strg+F, wählst die FTP-Verbindung (mit gespeichertem Passwort), klickst aber nicht auf Verbinden, sondern fällst tot um.

Hello, chbwien.

Telling from the term "putty-based plugin", I assume that you may accidentally mix up the two unrelated sFTP plugins for Total Commander: The latter uses libCurl DLLs, whereas the former is based on putty.
To the best of my knowledge the following is true for renaming / moving with the help of Christian's sFTP Plugin: press <shift><F6> and type in the new name (renaming) or the new path and new name (moving).

Kind regards,
Karl

Moving between PC and SFTP server isn't currently supported by my SFTP plugin because I think that the risk of data loss is too high. You should verify that everything was copied all right before deleting the source files.

Hello,
I tried to use this SFTP plugin v1.0 and it works fine for some servers.

But I am not able to connect to server, which have double autentization.
(Double autentization is required)

Firstly, I must connect via SSH key, secondly the password is necessary to enter.

Can you help me, to set up the connection for this double autentization, if this is possible ?

UPDATE:
I am not able to connect to server by using SSH KEY, so my problem is quit bigger then it firstly appear :-(
Neither Key, nor PAGEANT.

I have never seen a site with double authentication, that's why it's currently not implemented. Do you know how to configure SSH on Linux to force double authentication? I have enabled SSH key authentication on Ghisler.com, but when I use the key I don't need the password and vice versa...

Are you able to login with Putty via Pageant?

thanks for your answer,

Add Pageant => Mea Culpa = I entered wrong username :-(

Pageant and SSH key works perfect !

Add double autentization, I don't know, if linux can do it, on that server is AIX and it is made by configuration parameter in SSH2_config file

RequiredAuthentications= publickey,password

I tried to search the internet and OpenSSH probably don't support this feature :-(

OpenSSH needs patch from:
https://bugzilla.mindrot.org/show_bug.cgi?id=983

But libssh2, which sftpplug is based on, doesn't support it yet. But it's planned feature and seems to be close to release. I missed that at first, so I played with it myself and result can be found at:

http://web.hisoftware.cz/sob/download/sftpplug100-doubleauth-test.zip

It contains both patches and binaries for libssh2 and sftpplug and it works for me. But I don't recommend it for anything except testing.

Nice, thanks! For the moment, going via Pageant is sufficient. Hopefully it will be added to openssh soon.

Not for vilik1 if his server requires double authentication now and he can't change it. But before libssh2 officially supports it, sftpplug can't do anything (except for unofficial modification like mine above).

Unfortunately I cannot test it myself because I cannot enable double authentication on my server. Does your modification work also with Pageant for the client certificate? May I include your modification in my code?

If you use OpenSSH, you would have to recompile it with above mentioned patch. But IMHO it's waste of your time at this point, because neither libssh2 supports chained authentication yet. According to their bug tracker they have the fix ready and with some luck it may be included in next release. Adding support to sftpplug before that won't help anyone. Moreover, official libssh2 version will be at least slightly different from mine, because I didn't bother checking if something is already available and instead made quick-test modification myself. Why not, didn't take long and was fun. :)

It's primarily tested with Pageant. When the key authentication succeeds, it loops to beginning and continues with password authentication (because publickey gets automatically removed from supported authentication methods at this point). But whole thing will need more testing, to see how it works with differently ordered method, etc..
May I include your modification in my code?
As usual (= anything you want).

many thanks for all, I will test the patches of Sob and I will wait for official version after next release of libssh2

Update: After replacing libssh2.dll with the new one, TotalCmd don't see it and write error "Put the libraries into the same directory as plugin..."

I used VC++ 2008, so the dll depends on msvcr90.dll. It's possible you don't have it. Check Windows Event log under System and if there are some errors about Microsoft.VC90.CRT (assembly not installed or something like that), then you need:

Installing it should solve the loading problem.

I know this thread is old but I couldn't find an answer to my question (which follows) elsewhere in the forum. I apologize in advance if it has already been answered (in which case please provide a link!).

How is moving between PC and SFTP server risky? In theory there shouldn't be any reasonable risk (data integrity should be guaranteed by the crypto protocol). Do you have any reasons to believe that the implementation has serious bugs? I'm not asking whether the implementation contains bugs or not -all programs contain bugs unless proven otherwise, which, is not very easy to do..-, I'm just asking if you think the implementation is flawed or unstable.

If this is the case, I think there should be a warning or some kind of version labeling indicating that the plugin is in beta/alpha/testing mode.

Best,
omniignorant
