#5334 new Bug report

Cannot connect to SFTP server: "Server unexpectedly closed network connection"

Reported by: David Owned by:

Keywords: sftp, connection closed Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: Windows 7


Duplicate of bug #3823 ( but could not find solution there.

The problem only is with some SFTP servers (actually I only know one).

I can establish a good connection with other servers, and can establish a good connection with both PuTTY (SSH) and PSFTP.

Ooh, I forgot to add that (for this server) the problem is repeatable across multiple users/computers (I let 2 others try it)

I can confirm the issue is not present in the Linux version of Filezilla (Ubuntu 10.04, 3.3.1-1ubuntu1)

This problem still persists after an upgrade from Debian 4.0/etch to Debian 5.0/Lenny.
It is persistent across every (Filezilla) windows client I've tried on multiple computers and internet connections. WebDrive and WinSCP connect fine.
