CoffeeNerd: This just started happening after I installed the current daily build - now none of my installations (production 7.4 patch 1, 20131108 build nor this build are able to upload files to my remote server via sFTP.

GUEST: I tried to make a remote php project.
Used SFTP connection mode and hit test connection button

mmolda: Configuring new SFTP connection. Filled in Host name, username, password and clicked on Test Connection - exception thrown.

GUEST: upload not possible <Please provide a description of the problem or the steps to reproduce>

Comment 2 Tomas Mysik 2014-03-05 07:23:45 UTC
Unfortunately, this happens for SFTP if proxy is used. Definitely a patch candidate...

Should be fixed now, please verify (proxy, no proxy, ssh-agent, no ssh-agent). 

Comment 3 Tomas Mysik 2014-03-05 07:48:44 UTC
Since the fix should be safe (reviewed by Ondra), transplanting to release repo to branch release80.

Comment 4 Tomas Mysik 2014-03-05 07:50:06 UTC
Láďo/Milane, verify please this issue in latest biuld of NB 8.0. Thanks a lot.
