Ah, sorry guys. I found the problem. My sshd had only public key and keyboard
interactive authentification enabled. But not "by password".
Honestly I can't realy see the "big" difference between authentification by
password and "keyboard interactive" besides the interactive part ... but I guess
that's a different story.

However, my small sftp client works now. I just modified the example code a
little bit.

One last thing: your example creates a char "buffer" of 1kb. But is that
suitable/adviceable for "real world" applications? Shouldn't it be (much) bigger
like 512kb ?
Waht's your suggestions ?

Thanks a lot
