Using SimplesftpClient and trying to determine what to set the authentication type to. Right now if use the "simplesftdemo" app and I try and connect to the vsftpd server I specify a user name and password and hit OK I then get a prompt asking for a "password" the caption on the prompt dialog says "keyboard authentication". In the documentation I see the different types of authentication types - hostbased, keyboard , and so on. What determines what I set this to? Is the owner of the vsftpd server supposed to determine this?

Thanks, Joe

SSH_AUTH_TYPE_PASSWORD | SSH_AUTH_TYPE_KEYBOARD would be enough for absolutely most cases of password-based authentication. Add SSH_AUTH_TYPE_PUBLICKEY if you need to authenticate with a private key instead of a password.
