  • RE: SFTP connection Errors 105 and 96258

    Replying to my own post here in case anyone comes across a similar case. It turned out that I had to manually try several combinations of protocols and ciphers until I found a working one. Apparently leaving things to AUTO does not always work. Information found in the logs was also not too helpful unfortunately. 
  • SFTP connection Errors 105 and 96258

    Due to a change on one of our partners side, I need to reconfigure the SFTP connection on a file transfer task. When testing with the new connection info, I get FTP failed errors as follows:

    In FTP Browser: "Error: Connection lost due to error 96258"
    In log file: Error 105

    Partner site operator gave the following info:

    I tried these settings in Automate, without success. Besides that,  I believe by keeping everything on AUTO it should just work.

    There's one thing however. The password I was given contains special characters, namely a bracket "(", and a hashtag "#*. Could these cause any issue?

    Using Automate 11.6.10.49
