I am working on setting up an SFTP server using Private / Public Key pair combinations for authentication. When I gave the private key and password to our developers group to test getting there process setup, they imported the key into GoAnywhere Director (version 3.5.1) and received an error "No Such Cipher" upon testing. After some trial an error, I was able to determine that its not accepting the default OpenSSH encryption of AES-128-CBC. Is there an update that will allow GoAnywhere to accept this cipher? Or is our only choice to save the keys without using encryption? Or to use the GoAnywhere Key manager to create the key and export the public key to the server rather than import the OpenSSH Private key to GoAnywhere?

Our first suggestion would be to upgrade to the latest version of GAD (Currently 4.3).

Second, I would ask that you contact our Support group to discuss what it is you're trying to do with the SSH Private Key so that we might be able to help you with what you're doing. It will take some testing and us seeing your log files in Debug Mode for us to know specifically what's happening and how we can address this.
