Hi. This error is thrown when there is no possibility to connect on socket layer. Please check if you can do the socket connection to the designated host and port.

Hi : We are able to connect to the host on that port using other clients.

I should mention that this is an intermittent issue.
Also the same copy of the secure black box dlls are being shared by multiple threads.

1) Please specify the version of SecureBlackbox that you are using and whether you use the evaluation or licensed version.
2) Each instance of the transport component (such as TElSimpleSFTPClient) must be used from only one thread. However, multiple instances of transport component or multiple instances of different components can be used safely from different threads.
3) The exception has ErrorCode property which gives you more information. Please check it's value (in code) if the exception happens.

Sincerely yours

Hi Eugene,
We are using a licensed version of secure black box 6.

I have wrapped my Open() in a try catch as per your suggesstion.

catch (SBSimpleSftp.EElSimpleSFTPClientException ex)
throw new MyException<string>("SftpClient.Open threw an exception",String.Format("Error Code = {0}", ex.ErrorCode), ex.InnerException);

On another note....

We keep receiving the following error even when we are able to connect and upload/download successfully.
SFTP Authentication type [16] failed

our authentication type is set as:
SftpClient.AuthenticationTypes = SftpClient.AuthenticationTypes & (~SBSSHConstants.Unit.SSH_AUTH_TYPE_PUBLICKEY);
