SFTP issue

we have genarated ssh keys and now we are able to connect remote server. But while sending data through sftp "lcd" to some local directory failed although they are exist on local server.

E-MS$ sftp
sftp> open AOLTRIO676@213.187.33.243
Opening connection to AOLTRIO676@213.187.33.243

sftp> I'm Robo-FTP Server 3.1.1.0
sftp> lcd /btn_cpe
/DISK$BCK/000000
sftp> lls
.
INCOMING.DIR;1
LOGFILES.DIR;1
PROCESSED.DIR;1
RECEIVED.DIR;1
VAT.DIR;1
WORKFILES.DIR;1
sftp> lcd /incoming
CD failed.
/DISK$BCK/000000
sftp> lcd INCOMING
PWD failed.
sftp>

We want to change local directory to incoming where we got "PWD failed" message.

Help!!!

> Help!!!

You first.

sftp "-V"

Who owns INCOMING.DIR, and what are its
protections? And who are you? And can you
SET DEFAULT to this directory (and see its
contents) before you run SFTP?

dire /owne /prot INCOMING.DIR
[...]

> sftp> lcd /incoming
> CD failed.

No big surprise there. "/" is not a very
well-defined thing on a VMS system.

>> /DISK$BCK/000000
>> sftp> lcd INCOMING
>> PWD failed.
>> sftp>

Have you also tried this
sftp> lcd /INCOMING

Re: SFTP issue

Hi,

Which version of TCP/IP are you using?
Looks like this issue has been fixed. Refer the below link:
http://h30266.www3.hp.com/masterindex/release_notes/release_notes_00c97bb0.txt

=====================================================
14-Mar-2005 Alpha and IA64

Problem:

The sftp lcd and lpwd commands issue the error "PWD failed."

Deliverables:

TCPIP$SSH_SFTP2.EXE

Reference:

Re: SFTP issue

Hi Joy,

please check the definition of btn_cpe - it should be a rooted directory ending in a full stop. If I remember correctly

disk$bck:[btn_cpe.]

Compare with the definitions of carre4, virgin_twn2 and and others in sylogicals.com.

Best wishes,

Duncan

Do we need to pay for this information?

"-V" and "-v" are different. (And one of
them needs to be quoted.)
