Are you using public key authentication, and if do, did the
authorized_keys file get deleted or overwritten when the server was updated.

The server was replaced by an other (new ip as well). authorized_keys files of the old server are worthless and lost.

On the new server public key authentication seems to be disabled.
I've tried to use public key authentication with Putty my SSH Secure Client. But the only auth method which seems to work is keyboard-interactive.

Thats why i'm use ssh as follows:
ssh2 -oallowedauthentications=keyboard-interactive

When i use plink.exe also keyboard-interactive is used (with no need for an extra command line option).



C:\rsync>plink user@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Using username "user".
