Thread: sftp "Received message too long " error!

  1. #1

    Default sftp "Received message too long " error!

    I'm trying to use sftp to log in to a site's ftp but keep getting the error "Received message too long." I tried changing my .bashrc file to have:

    Code:
    if [ ${TERM} != "dumb" ]; then
      test -s ~/.bashrc-local && . ~/.bashrc-local
    fi
    then I logged out and logged back in (from openSUSE) and it still gives me the error!

    caution: i really don't know much about sftp, but since you write "to
    a site's ftp" i wonder if the site you are tying to contact running
    ftpd or sftpd?

    and, if the latter i wonder if it maybe is a Window's machine...but,
    i'm not sure sftp on your command line is not a "Secure file transfer
    program" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_...ansfer_program
    which i don't think can connect with a Windows implementation of
    something very different: "SSH file transfer protocol"
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SSH_file_transfer_protocol

    if it is just plain FTP site you need to just just plain FTP

    what happen if you just

    [CODE]
    ftp [address]
    [CODE]

    and respond to the ID/password requests?
