Unsupported sftp after upgrade (18.4)

Hello I have just upgraded my OSMC from Kodi 18.3 to Kodi 18.4
and after restart, sftp is no more working
vfs.sftp plugin has also changed from v1.0.1 to vfs.sftp v1.0.3 so problem may could be here

Here are my logs:

I can still connect from a console, using an ssh key:
osmc@osmc:~$ sftp kodi@mysshserver
Connected to mysshserver.

If you have any clue let me know, otherwise I’m going to check changes on plugin


Can you please post full logs


Hello Sam,

with the previous version of vfs.sftp plugin you had to specify “sftp|ssh://”
now you have to specify simply “sftp://” in source.xml

It works perfectly when correcting the protocol name

King regards
