    I am using paramiko to do an SFTP file transfer... I was able to connect
    to the remote server using an SFTP client I have just to make sure
    that username and password are working.. But when i try to connect
    using this script it fails ....

    **hostname, username and password are declared.

    # now, connect and use paramiko Transport to negotiate SSH2 across
    the connection
    sock = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM)
    sock.connect((hostname, port))

    t = paramiko.Transport(sock)
    event = threading.Event()


    if not t.is_active():
    print 'SSH negotiation failed.'
    print "SSH negotiation sucessful"


    t.auth_password(username=username, password=password,event=event)

    if not t.is_authenticated():
    print "not authenticated"
    SSH negotiation successful
    not authenticated
