Scott -

From your article, when I try to start the SSH daemon with:


I get the following:

Could not load host key:
Could not load host key:
Could not load host key:
Disabling protocol version 1. Could not load host key
Disabling protocol version 2. Could not load host key
sshd: no hostkeys available -- exiting.

Any ideas?

I recently wrote an article about SSH/SCP/SFTP. If you're interested in
that, it's located here (requires a Pro membership with System iNetwork):

In my experience, you don't need to get the server's key -- that'll be
done by SSH automatically. But you do need to generate your own
private/public keys, and install the public key (or have them install it)
on the server.

But a lot of it also depends on how the server is configured. Is it
configured to allow password logons? Is it configured to allow
interactive logons?

If the folks running the server know less about SFTP than you do, how the
heck did they set this up?

Once again, we're attempting to use SFTP (yes, the one in SSH) to connect
to a business partner's server. I've done the ssh-keyscan and have
gotten their public key (I think) and have done ssh-keygen and created my
private/public keys (I think). Do they have to install my public key on
their server?

When I 'call qp2term' and enter 'sftp myuserid@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx', I get
the following response:

Connecting to
Permission denied, please try again.
Permission denied, please try again.
Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-with-mic,password).
Connection closed

I presume that I'm connected but don't have access to something on their
end. Are the 3 'permission denied' messages a result of a 'retry' or do
I not have access to 3 things or what?

The business partner knows less about SFTP than I do (if that's
possible), so they're no help.
