#794 closed Bug report

SFTP download fails with "no such file or directory"

Reported by: keehan Owned by: Alexander Schuch
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client

I have tried to get support for this at the forum, but no
ideas. See the thread at:

The problem appears to be with SFTP in particular. The
connection to the users home directory works fine, but
issuing "download" in the home directory fails. Text from
the thread:

We are trying to pull files down to the client via
Filezilla's SFTP client and we are having a problem. The
server is OpenSSH 3.7.1p2. When doing view/edit or
download all return the following output:

Status: Starting download of /home/username/test.ksh
Command: GET test.ksh C:\Documents and
Settings\username.domain\Desktop\test.ksh FALSE
Response: /home/usernametest.ksh: no such file or
Error: Download failed

It looks like the response is missing a / between the
directory and the filename. Is this a known issue? FYI...I
tried to do the same transfer with the PuTTy client
directly with the same results. I have been successful
with the client and OpenSSH commandline
client from UNIX.

I am attaching a debug trace if it helps. This is hight
priority for us as we can't donwload any files through
SFTP using Filezilla.

I have tested with the same results on Filezilla 2.2.8a
through 2.2.10. The problem still exists.



P.S. From the is interesting to note the same
problem directly in puTTY. Perhaps the problem is
puTTY directly.

I have the same prob.
but using OpenSSH_3.8.1p1, OpenSSL 0.9.6m, on AIX 5.2

Can you please test FileZilla 3 beta to see if the problem is still there?

This seems to be a duplicate for bug #1313082 (File transfer
via SFTP is omitting the trailing backslash). Closed.
