SFTP Connection Error - OPENSSH PRIVATE KEY

Dear Expert,
I have been trying to connect with target application via SFTP through MFT. I have generated public/private RSA key using openSSH on linux server(without setting any passphrase). While I am able to connect with target application through unix command line but I am not able to establish the same connectivity via MFT GUI and getting below error -
com.sshtools.publickey.InvalidPassphraseException: Unsupported type: OPENSSH PRIVATE KEY
Can anyone suggest what could be the issue here ?

Hi Saurav,

What is the MFT version in use?
With latest fixes, this issue should not have been there.

We are using webMethod 10.5. As of now, there is no patch/fix installed on the server.

Hi Saurav,

Please apply the recent ActiveTransfer 10.5 Server Fix 9.
This should resolve your issue.
