SFTP to A5820?

Hi,

 

Whenever I try a secure filetransfer over SSH on one of our A5820 stacks, I get the following error:

 

debug1: channel 0: new [client-session]

debug1: Entering interactive session.

debug1: Sending environment.

debug1: Sending env XMODIFIERS = @im=none

debug1: Sending env LANG = en_US

debug1: Sending env LANGUAGE = 

debug1: Sending subsystem: sftp

subsystem request failed on channel 0

 

Normal log -ins in over SSH work fine.

 

This is from a Linux host using OpenSSH 5.5. I tried forcing several subsystem requests, but to no avail. I want this functionality to automate backups of our switches using our in-house backup tool.

 

Relevant information from the stack in question:

 

[STACK]display ssh  server status 

 SSH server: Enable

 SSH version : 1.99 
 SSH authentication-timeout : 60 second(s)
 SSH server key generating interval : 0 hour(s)
 SSH authentication retries : 3 time(s)
 SFTP server: Enable
 SFTP server Idle-Timeout: 10 minute(s)

 

Log-entries:

Any ideas? I'm I doing something wrong here?

 

Thanks in advance.
