Argh, something is wrong with either Dreamhost or Blogger, because I’ve not been able to successfully publish my neatlinks since Sunday morning. (23-Aug-2005)
I think Dreamhost may have updated their systems in such a way that it’s locking out some SSH/SFTP connections. My Windows-based ssh client (SecureCRT) won’t connect, but my SFTP client (WinSCP) works like a charm. Commandline ssh clients seem to work but Blogger bombs with the following message: 005 Unable to connect to SFTP server: Auth fail.
I’ve been back and forth with their customer service all week, and it was not until I pointed out that my problems coincided with their announced OS upgrade did they begin to take me seriously. This may warrant a longer followup post later depending on how/if/when things are resolved. As it stands, Blogger is still unable to SFTP to my Dreamhost account. And I’ve got a week’s backlog of neatlinks stuck in web application purgatory.
