I tried curl 7.49 with libssh2 1.7.0 in Windows and it appears to be
working for file retrieval. I tried password and then separately I tried
keyfile and both worked. I don't know a lot about libssh2 so I don't
have any comments about the diagnostic output that you posted. Try
another server and see if you have the same problem. In any case I'd
guess it would be helpful to disclose the server type.
