using putty or psftp with no password on KpyM

I am setting up a network of machines with this server on XP embedded systems with no administrator password. How do I log in? Putty and psftp require a password. If I add an administrator password it messes up my autostart functionality on the target systems.

If you are running KpyM as SSH server(port 22, this is the default install) you can't use it with accounts without passwords as it does not make much sense.

You can reinstall it as Telnet server (uninstall it then reinstall it choosing "telnet" check box) and it will give you access without password.
Note that in telnet mode you will losse the "sftp" part of the server.

Depending on what you are trying to do it might be a good idea to just create another windows account with password and use it to log in KpyM server.

I need to allow remote login without passwords also. In UNIX, sshd will check the user account for an authentication files. I don't know the exact protocol exchange. Effectively if you have a public key on 1 machine that matches a private key on the server, the ssh server allows the connection without requiring a password.

Is something like this possible with KPYM?

No, key authentication is not supported yet

I just met the server today and I'm quite impressed with the simplicity and power of the project but I am also used to using public/private key authentication.

Is key authentication supported yet? Thanks

Yes, look at this topic for setting up public keys
