Default SCP - wrong username

I am using flashfxp with vshell SCP server
When I use a wrong username for the session, flashfxp returns the following error:

[14:28:58] [R] Connecting to WRONG_PASS_SESSION -> DNS=my.server.com IP=192.168.1.10 PORT=22
[14:28:58] [R]
Connected to WRONG_PASS_SESSION [14:28:59] [R] Host key algorithm ssh-rsa, size 2048 bits.
[14:28:59] [R] Fingerprint (MD5): da:00:aa:a3:33:f6:44:11:1b:34:a5:11:11:11:12:22

[14:28:59] [R] Key exchange: diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha256. Session encryption: aes256-ctr, MAC: hmac-sha1, compression: none.

[14:28:59] [R] Auth Type: Password

*[14:28:59] [R] SSH Error: failed to negotiate authentication method*

[14:28:59] [R] SSH Connection closed [14:28:59] [R] Connection failed


This seems to be wrong.
An error like "Invalid username or password" should be returned, shouldn't it?

The login failure reply from a SSH server is vague and in most cases doesn't tell you why access was denied, just that access was denied, which could mean a lot of things, such as the user/pass are correct but the user doesn't have access, or that the user is temporarily disabled, or maybe this user can only sign in using public key authentication.

After some real-world testing and stepping through the code I discovered that there is something wrong.

Good catch.

I am still investigating the issue and will let you know what I find.

[08:56:40] [R] Key exchange: curve25519-sha256@libssh.org. Session encryption: aes256-ctr, MAC: hmac-sha1, compression: none.
[08:56:40] [R] Auth Type: Password
[08:56:40] [R] Authentication failed [unknown user or invalid password]
[08:56:40] [R] SSH Error: failed to negotiate authentication method
[08:56:40] [R] SSH Connection closed
[08:56:40] [R] Connection failed

Here we go, the correct the result.

The "Authentication failed" line was not being triggered due to an unexpected change in one of the SecureBlackBox updates.
