SFTP Error during ASCII transfers.

Hi all,

I'm hoping someone can help with this as it is driving me crazy.  I am
trying to sftp a file from an OpenVMS box using SSH secure File
transfer program.  The file type is .lis (a text file) and I use ASCII
to perform transfers.  I can transfer files under 1MB with no problem,
but anything bigger than that and the transfer stops and I get an

"File transfer server could not be started or it exited unexpectedly.
Exit value 0 was returned.  Most likely the sftp-server is not in the
path of hte user on the server-side."

If I use binary mode, the transfer completes successfully, but the
file formatting gets screwed up so this is unacceptable.    I'm sorry
if I left out any pertinent information but I am not very good at VMS/

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Well, being in OpenVMS is one set of problems. It's really not a
common platform. But if you can transfer successfully in binary mode,
why not install "unix2dos" and "dos2unix"? Or isn't that available in
