SFTP subsystem doesn't work.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:18 EST
Description of problem:
SFTP subsystem doesn't work. Fails silently while SCP works fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just try inbound SFTP on a stock RHEL 4 machine.
SFTP inbound fails.
SFTP inbound should work.
All it does is create nice secure log entries like:
May ## ##:##:## hostname sshd: subsystem request for sftp
And nothing else. The client fails to connect regardless of client. SCP works
fine. No process I can see via ps or top seems to actually be launched on the
server side. Haven't tried tracing or debug mode yet, will update with debug
after I get these mass migrations done via SCP first.
I couldn't reproduce this problem here do you have more information? F. E. exact
commands which fail, architecture of the HW, the debugging logs and so on.
The problem seems to be unique to when I'm using a WinSCP client. The logging
shows nothing useful, it just drops. Verbose doesn't help either.... just
*poof*. I haven't captured a session via Ethereal but I'm unsure that's going to
be fruitful. Since it's unique to the WinSCP client (tried various versions
too), I'm closing this bug.
