authentication ok but connection disconnects

To whom it corresponds,


I have been trying to connect my RHEL4 machine through public key
authentication against a windows server 2003 machine running OpenSSH for
Windows v3.8.1p1-1.


I set up everything: keys, user, etc. Doing sftp -vv user@<wsip> I see that
authentication went ok but somehow, connection hangs up. I removed
anti-virus and other security software on the ws2003 machine that could
cause this error and same results.


Can anyone please help me? I am getting desperate here: don’t know what else
to try.


Please find attached my sshd_config file plus the output I get when
performing the sftp command on my linux machine.


Thanks in advance.


Best Regards
