Automatic upload failed: could not connect to SFTP server at myserver.com (Auth fail)

I am using webstorm on a project since 2-3 weeks now. its on a remote server, and I m using the sftp option in webstorm. Whenever I  save a file it is auto saved at the server also.

Suddenyl since 5 mins I m getting the error -

Automatic upload failed: could not connect to SFTP server at myserver.com (Auth fail)

I tested the ssh connection to the server - it works
I tested the sftp connection through webstorm settings - its successful
Only when I make changes to a code file and save it, I get the error.

I am using ubuntu12 and webstorm evauation version.
I had the same problem on OSX 3 weeks ago.

Hello!


please turn debug logging on for deployment feature (as described in https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/entries/26990487-Enabling-SSH-FTP-debug-logging-to-report-problems-with-deployment-and-remote-SDK-configuration), recreate the bug and attach the generated idea.log

@hassanzadeh I just recently started having the problem as well.

It's recommended to contact support directly: advanced logging is required to check the problem

In my case problem was with .bashrc witch generate to large sftp package. Problem was found after attempt to connect by winscp, witch provide me more informative problem discription

In my case it was the "encoding for client-server communication" setting in the Deployment settings.
