SFTP problem (OpenSSH for Windows)

Threaded View

I installed OpenSSH for Windows here on a W2k system. All of the SSH stuff
works really great (key auth and console based login) but the SFTP
subsystem couldn't be started (same with SCP).

Perhaps the problem may be related to any locale problem (the system is a
german Windows 2000 server with installed SP4).

Here is the verbose log of a SCP client and after that the event log
entries of the server:

-- Client log:

Sent password
Access granted
Opened channel for session
Started a shell/command
Using SFTP
Connected to bob
Server sent command exit status 0
All channels closed. Disconnecting
unable to initialise SFTP: could not connect

-- Server log:

# Accepted password for user from port 5481 ssh2
# sshd : PID 656 : subsystem request for sftp.

Make sure the sftp-server binary where the sshd's Subsystem, and try
invoking it via ssh ("ssh server /path/to/sftp-server") and see if it
gives an error.

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
