I successfully log in to the remote site using SFTP and can use the ls command to list the directory contents, which include a number of sub-directories. I can cd to these directories but I can't list their contents. Also, I can't get or put files from/to these directories.
I used mkdir to create a new directory of my own and I can access, list the contents and transfer files OK to/from this new directory.

The winscp thread is as follows. I have dummied out the pasword.
Log file attached.
This operation works fine in the WinSCP GUI.
I also downloaded pUTTY SFTP and had the same issue so I think it is to do with the remote server.

First, you cd to outgoing, but the directory is Outgoing (capital O). Second, are you sure you start in root directory? I.e. is it really /Outgoing, not something like /home/username/Outgoing? Using relative path cd Outgoing should work in either case.
