Description

When i launch the SFTP connection it tells me, after i while, i don’t have permissions to access the server. It even doesn’t ask me for the password.
The same server and other servers i tried work well with Filezilla but none of them worked with SWISH!

Just a stab in the dark but are you trying to connect to a server on the same computer as Swish (i.e. localhost) and does the computer not have an external network connected? If so this is a version of #114.

If not, then something else is going on. The interesting thing on your screenshot is that Swish is failing when trying to open a socket to your server.

I found the problem:

It was my antivirus suite firewall (Bitdefender 2013 Total Security) that blocked swish!
With firewall disabled Swish finally shows me the password window. But even if i insert the correct password, password window reappears as password was wrong.

Can you also explain to all of us what file should add to firewall exclusion for unlock swish? I can't find any SWISH.EXE or similar process for add an exclusion.

Thank you very much; this utility is very good!

  • Status changed from accepted to closed
  • Resolution set to invalid

Swish is an Explorer extension so the file would be explorer.exe
