During the handshake of an SFTP connection (with PublicKeyAndPassword as well as Server Validation) the EnterpriseDTLog reports an error, but then the connection is successful:

DEBUG EnterpriseDTLog - Packet arrived
DEBUG EnterpriseDTLog - ProcessAuthenticationResponse: SSH_MSG_USERAUTH_FAILURE
ERROR EnterpriseDTLog - Auth partial success. Try: password

Since we're integrating the EnterpriseDTLog with Log4Net, it means an error is logged every time a connection is made.
Is there possibly something in our connection settings that could be causing this? Or is there any known workaround?

What it means is that the authentication partially succeeded, but the server requires another authentication as well - it is suggesting via password. This is being done automatically.

For partial success, it probably should be a debug level message. It has been changed to that in the source, so in future this error message won't appear.

Thanks, that will be fine.
Do you have a date for the next release?

It won't be for a couple of months. Let us know if you'd like a build to use in the interim.
