I am trying to connect to an Android dropbear SSH Server. The initial connection and authentication work fine, however when I try to open a session channel the channel number is returned as -1.

    int channelNum = mSSH->OpenSessionChannel();
    if (channelNum < 0)
    {
        char buffer[2048];
        sprintf_s(buffer, 2048, "%s\nError: %s", mSSH->lastErrorText(), mSSH->channelOpenFailReason());
        LOGW(buffer);
        return;
    } 

The last error text is

    ChilkatLog:   OpenSessionChannel:

How do I fix this?

Thanks

Here are the lags from the connect and authenticate. All seems OK.

So I found the fix for this was to authenticate using a private key. There seems to be a bug in the AuthenticatePw code, as it was saying that the authentication succeeded.

The message type 51 is a SSH2_MSG_USERAUTH_FAILURE. Check the LastErrorText's for calls leading up to the call to OpenSshChannel to see if that gives any clues.

Can't see anything in the logs. I have added them to the question.
