  • Invalid argument in ssh_options_set

    Since I upgraded to version 12 on my MacBook Pro, all of my server connections that use SSH tunnels have stopped working. When I go to my old MacBook Air with an older version of Navicat, they all still work. I have tried recreating them, etc. with no luck.

    They are connections to 4 different servers including a virtual MySQL service at Rackspace. I always get the same error when I try to establish the connection, it is "11 Invalid argument in ssh_options_set". I have tried checking on and off all of the possible settings in the SSH tab of the connection setup. I can still SSH to all of these servers directly from Terminal (on my MacBook Pro) and there does not seem to be any problems with the servers (and I can still connect to them with my old MacBook using Navicat).

    Any help would help to fix this or to find a work-around would be greatly appreciated.

        Please provide the following information in the ticket:

        1. Does the problem only happen on version 12.1.23?
        2. Which previous version that works properly?
        3. Screenshots showing the connection settings (i.e. General, Advanced, SSH tabs). To open the connection window, control-click your connection and select Edit Connection.
