  • "Public key agent authorization failed."

    In Beyond Compare 3 there's a particular message in the log that always bothers me and I was hoping it could be changed for BC 4.

    When connecting to an SFTP session that uses a saved password, rather than a public key, a red error message is displayed in the log that scrolls by at the bottom:

    "Public key agent authorization failed."

    The fact that this is displayed, and especially since it is displayed in red, makes it look like something went wrong when connecting.

    For BC4, if a connection profile has not been configured to use a public key, please don't show this failure message.

    Thanks for the report. This isn't something we've been able to address yet, but is on our list to look into.
