Thanks Dan, -v options really helps me to check debug.

Authentication success, got confirmed by libssh2_userauth_authenticated.
Channel created success.

Now there is another issue,
while executing command It's returning error string "Failed waiting for
channel success".

May I know what problem it is???

Thanks
Kishore
