I'm using Win XP with Putty 0.59, SSH. The port is being forwarded
through our firewall. The far end is a Tumbleweed sFTP server.
From the command line, I have no problems with the following cmd:
psftp.exe -v -load "RemoteServer" < blah.script
but when I try to use putty.exe interactively :
putty.exe -v -load "RemoteServer"
it prompts for the password, which I type correctly and I get the
dreaded "server refused to start a shell/command" and "Server refused
to allocate pty" error message.
Anyone seen this before? Can I not use the GUI PuTTY interactively?

2007-04-29 PuTTY 0.60 is released
PuTTY 0.60 is out, containing mostly bug fixes.
2007-01-24 PuTTY 0.59 is released
So there was a new (bugfix) release more than a year ago, please update
Not me, I've never tried it :P
Not sure, but PuTTY is a telnet/SSH client, not an (S)FTP client, I
think that's what psftp.exe is for ;)
Here are the PuTTY files themselves:
* PuTTY (the Telnet and SSH client itself)
* PSCP (an SCP client, i.e. command-line secure file copy)
* PSFTP (an SFTP client, i.e. general file transfer sessions much
You might have a go with Plink (plink.exe), maybe it can do what you
want, but Plink is not a GUI, so I guess not ..
Plink is probably not what you want if you want to run an interactive
session in a console window.
