ws_ftp pro vs. openssh

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I have a user who uses WS_FTP Pro as an ssh/sftp client. I recently
updated OpenSSH to 4.2_p1-r1 from 3.9 (this is on Gentoo, sigh), and
sometimes he gets uploaded files (sftp) which are the wrong length and
their contents are scrambled.

He upgraded to the latest WS_FTP Pro client version, no luck.

Any ideas? I could downgrade OpenSSH, but I hate downgrading
security-related software. ssh/scp in general seem to be working fine.

It doesn't happen to be linked with OpenSSL 0.9.8a does it?  There's
been a few odd reports and so far the only common thread seems to be
that version of OpenSSL, although it's probably just a coincidence.

Is it just sftp affected?  If you use the sftp-server binary from the
working version does the problem persist?

Does the same problem occur with the vanilla OpenSSH from

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