When using a profile that was original created in SSH Secure Shell I get the following error message:

Failed to open a secure terminal session:broker failure

The profile does use a host key for authentication.

Hi Linda, what version of Tectia client are you using? Can you copy paste the log messages when this happens into your question? You can find them by right clicking on the broker tray icon and selecting status then going to the "logs" section.

I realize this is a stale thread, but I couldn't find any threads with even the slightest hint. Since I now do have a hint, here it is: I found that there were a large number of abandoned Tectia terminal sessions. After killing several processes (it took a -9 to get them to go away), The "broker failure" error stopped occurring. I didn't research what limit we had hit, but I assume there is a tunable parameter somewhere which controls the number of ptys or some other related resource.
