SFTP Fails

I'm testing the software out for a SFTP application. It works fine for some sites.

One site will not allow us to upload files. We get a "Error: Setting remote file modify time failed. No such file. File not found."

I can create folders, rename existing files, delete files with no issue. Its uploading files that does not work.

WINSCP works fine for all aspects. Is there a setting missing?

Thanks

Which version are you using?

What kind of host is generating the error? (Linux?)

Host is running GlobalSCAPE. I believe this is a Windows based app

Does the file reach the destination? THis error appears to occur after the file transfer is complete.

Researching Globalscape.....

It does not appear to get there in the session.

Finally traced it down to a problem with SSH_FXP_FSETSTAT (setting stats, such as create/modify time on the target file after transfer). Globalscape server seems to reject it, though I'm not sure why. The website indicates it should be a supported command. OpenSSH handles it just fine.

I'm going to work around this by silently ignoring when the FSETSTAT fails. This at least allows the transfer to complete successfully.

I have an updated version for you to try:

http://www.celestialsoftware.net/telnet/AbsoluteTelnet9.84RC11.exe

This version silently ignores the error at the end of the file transfer when trying to set the file date/time.
