Description of problem:
When I use gftp to make an SSH connection between two machines, it
complains that it cant find sftpserv and fails.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
3.enter username, password, etc
Actual Results: Gftp spits out the following error:
Opening SSH connection to volcan
bash: sftpserv: command not found
Error: Received wrong init string from server
Waiting 30 seconds until trying to connect again
Expected Results: sftp connection to other machine
SSH connections work to the machines involved without gftp.
I believe this problem is on the SSH server, not in gftp. openssh-servers is
supposed to contain sftpserv.
