MFA for SFTP/SCP (vis-a-vie DUO)

I know, for example, that Putty-based terminal seems to handle this while the Rebex one does not. But what about the built in SFTP and SCP clients? Not sure if that is a custom piece of work or based on some other open source code base.

If anyone is interested, I put in a Feature Enhancement Request for Royal Server Secure Gateway to support MFA...

I can't really tell. We have tested MFA prompts - not sure if DUO was among those but the implementation/prompts are quite generic. I suggest you double-check your configuration, maybe also test with PuTTY and rebex based plugin for SSH. Should you still face problems, please open a support ticket here:

Please include screenshots, maybe a short video which shows the process in PuTTY compared to rebex.


The latest 5. (Not near my PC right now for exact version). Windows-based. It simply continues to prompt for credentials. Now that i think about it, could it be a weird interaction with the existing uid/pws set up? Pre-duo? Something have to change there?

Hi Andrew,

which version of Royal TS are you using? The latest versions should handle MFA requests in rebex based terminal and SFTP/SCP connections.
