Hello eewanco,

It does not, I believe it is completely coincidental.

Did you connect to this server prior to disabling those ciphers *with the exact same client configuration* without getting the public-key auth error?

It's possible the server actually supports keyboard-interactive authentication method, *not* password. So SecureCRT failed password auth, went on to the next auth method (public-key) in the list and when you *skipped* that authentication method, it went on to use keyboard-interactive (likely the third option in the list).

What the server supports as far as authentication methods will be shown in trace options output (File menu).
