TCPIP SHOW VERSION (or whatever makes sense
with your IP software)?

sftp -"V"

Not a useful description of what you did.
Actual command? Actual output?

What's at the other end?

FTP and SFTP are different.

Most of the files that I transfer using sftp need to first be converted to stream_lf documents.

Re: SFTP -ERROR--

If the SFTP is from Process Software (MultiNet, TCPware or SSH for OpenVMS), then it most likely encountered end of file while doing an automatic conversion of the file to stream-lf format. SFTP uses an estimate of the file size to figure out how much data it needs to transfer and when the file needs to be converted to stream-lf this estimate is usually high.
