  • Beyond Compare Key Login Issues with Amazon Web Services

    Hello,

    I'm having issues logging into an Elastic Comput Cloud instance with Beyond Compare 3.

    I've tried two keys, the one I generated and use on the command line. And one generated with BC3.

    Both keys work on the command line with the EC2 instance.
    Both keys work from BC3 to a physical Red Hat box.

    Neither key works from BC3 to my EC2 instance.

    I just get... "Connection failed (error code is -1)"

    Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    Thanks for the feedback. Are you currently using the Key as setup in the FTP Profile within BC3? Does it work if you setup an instance of Pageant?

    *Please note that Pageant is not a Scooter Software product and is not supported by Scooter Software.

      Thanks!

      I was using it in the Authentication tab in FTP Profiles in BC3. But Pageant did the trick. (For anyone else that ends up here) I converted the private key to ppk format using Putty Key Generator, loaded it into pageant, and then connected using BC3 with no problem.

      Thank you!
