SFTP problem - ssh memory allocation problem

running VMS 8.3 on Alpha DS20E problems with
ssh2 version
$ ssh2 "-V"
$1$dga2:[sys0.syscommon.][sysexe]tcpip$ssh_ssh2.exe: SSH Secure Shell OpenVMS (V5.5) 3.2.0 on COMPAQ AlphaServer DS20E 666 MHz - VMS
V7.3-2
tcpip version
$ tcpip show version

HP TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS Alpha Version V5.4 - ECO 7
on a COMPAQ AlphaServer DS20E 666 MHz running OpenVMS V7.3-2



the Secure ftp gives us this

sftp> put L*.AMD

%TCPIP-F-SSH_ALLOC_ERROR, ssh memory allocation error


there are 43 files L*.amd

any ideas please?

Re: SFTP problem - ssh memory allocation problem

Roger,

you have a V7.3-2 system and a V8.3 system. Which is the SFTP client and which is the SFTP server ?

Try the same operation on both systems as clients and as servers. Then you'll have 4 results. Then tell us which combinations don't work.

Re: SFTP problem - ssh memory allocation problem

Re: SFTP problem - ssh memory allocation problem

Roger,

there are indications, that this error may be solved in TCPIP V5.6. Use Google to search for 'SSH_ALLOC_ERROR'.

If it's not fixed in TCPIP V5.4 ECO 7, then there's not much hope for a fix anymore.

Also try from your V8.3 system (should have TCPIP V5.6 ECO 5 = most recent ECO).

Re: SFTP problem - ssh memory allocation problem

Roger,

TCPIP V5.4 ECO 7 lists a fix for:

3. Long directory listings do not cause the %TCPIP-F-SSH_ALLOC_ERROR error.

The relevant TCPIP$SSH images should have a version of V5.4-14BE (check with TCPIP SHOW VERS/ALL).

Re: SFTP problem - ssh memory allocation problem

thanks very much excellent
is it possible to only update the tcpip$ssh or do you have to upgrade the whole tcpip?

Re: SFTP problem - ssh memory allocation problem

Roger,

according to your $ TCPIP SHOW VERS output, you already have TCPIP V5.4 ECO 7 installed. Check for the version of the SSH images with TCPIP SHOW VERS/ALL

And no, you can only update the complete TCPIP software.

Re: SFTP problem - ssh memory allocation problem

Roger,

you have the V5.4-ECO7 images already installed and you're seeing this error.

Please give it a try from your 'upgraded' system (should be running V8.3 and TCPIP V5.6 ECO 5). If the same SFTP commands work from that system, then you know the 'solution' to this problem and you've also verified the solution.

Re: SFTP problem - ssh memory allocation problem

Don't you want to use MPUT rather than PUT?

Welcome to SFTP.

sftp> help mput
mput [ ... ]
Synonymous to put.
