After our ALEPH server OS upgrades, some campuses have reported receiving this error when trying to make an FTP connection to their ALEPH server using the client, WS_FTP Pro: “Failed SSH Key Exchange”
There are 2 possible solutions:
1) In WS_FTP Pro (at lease the latest version) under Options / SSH / you can uncheck this option: “Use zlib compression” and this does solve the problem. If you have an old version of WS_FTP and don’t see the option to uncheck the zlib compression, you can upgrade WS_FTP Pro (for a small price) and then de-select the zlib compression option. See http://www.ipswitch.com for download and purchase information. You’ll need your serial number for your current version; if you do not know it, they have options for helping you locate it.
2) You can switch to a good free SFTP client, WinSCP, available for download at http://winscp.net/eng/download.php The WinSCP interface is very user friendly.
