Cannot use SFTP/SSH to remote folder but FTP is fine.

Postby rsantiago » Wed Aug 05, 2015 9:36 pm

Wondering if someone can help me out here since I've exhausted my options. WingFTP is set up on Server1, the user's home directory is mapped to a shared folder on a a different server in the same domain (Server2). I created a local user account that is identical to the user account I created in WingFTP. Granted the WingFTP service account, ftp user account, and same local account full rights...even tried the 'everyone' group. I've created home directories to remote servers before in WingFTP, but all those prior to this one were just standard ftp over port 21.

I can connect to the new site and see a test file I had created in that remote home directory manually (directly on the server, no ftp/sftp/ssh). Problem seems to be when trying to actually upload a file to the site. Works if I use standard ftp over port 21, but not if I use the sftp/ssh over port 22. When using that latter method, it does not write to the directory and generates a "Server cannot write to a given path" message in my sftp client.

I did check with the Firewall guy and he verified port 22 is open on Server2 (the remote server) and that the two servers can access each other's folder structures.

Permissions are set on both Server1 and Server2 to full control for Everyone, the local ftp user, and the wingftp service account. Permissions on the folder when viewed via the sftp client show all 7's (full authority). So I'm at a loss.

Any ideas?

OK, you had better provide the related server logs, and which SFTP client did you use? you can also try other SFTP client software like FTP Rush or Filezilla.

Thanks for the reply. Appreciate any help on it. I have two sets of logs here...one from an SSH connection attempting to upload a simple txt document. The second is a standard ftp transfer test of the same file. As I've mentioned, I can see the directory structure and contents when connected via ssh (port 22), but cannot upload although full rights are enabled and verified port 22 is available.

It seems your WingFTP version is not recent, so please upgrade to the latest version 4.5.3 first.

Sorry for the late reply, but I finally managed to upgrade it to 4.5.3. However, issue persists. Standard FTP over port 21 transfers just fine. Errors when SSH over port 22 is used with same 'cannot write to given path' error on the two sftp clients I tested with. Here is the most current log output of a failed attempt to transfer a simple txt file.

Re: Cannot use SFTP/SSH to remote folder but FTP is fine.

Postby FTP » Tue Oct 20, 2015 4:14 am

OK, actually it is caused by the client side, because the sftp client send "SSH_FXP_STAT" before uploading, but when you use the Windows shared folder, you can't get the folder permission via the Windows API "_wstati64", so the server replies with: SSH_FXP_ATTRS: Filesize: 0, UserID: 0, GroupID: 0, Permissions: 0, Last modify time:0.

Then if the sftp client gets the folder permission with value "0", it won't upload the file, so that's the result. But you know most sftp client won't send "SSH_FXP_STAT" before uploading, so most sftp client can upload file when using the Windows shared folder.

Anyway, we will try to make an improvement in the server side, then WingFTP can be compatible with such sftp client.

Re: Cannot use SFTP/SSH to remote folder but FTP is fine.

Thank you very much for that information!!! Given that info, I tested by using the full path to the remote folder rather than the shared path. For example, changing it from //RemoteServer/SharedFolder/ to //RemoteServer/DriveLetter$/Folder/.

That full path workaround worked perfectly. I was able to upload documents to the destination remote server over SSH (log extract below).

Thank you again and I look forward to the release version that addresses this behavior for shared folders.
