Topic "Server does not support this operation?!"

I'm having a bit of trouble. When I use WinSCP and try to transfer a file to my server, I get this error:

The server does not support the operation.
Error code: 8
Error message from server (en): Operation not supported
Request code: 3

It's just a straight copy. Nothing fancy. I can do this with other non-secure FTP clients with no trouble, and I also can do it securely with Filezilla, though I vastly (and I mean *vastly*) prefer WinSCP.

Has anyone come across these errors before?

Can you post a full error message (not only the details)? Or even a log file?

What follows is the log for only the attempted copy operation as well as the logging that occurred after I selected abort on the error dialogue that appeared. I know I do have privs for this directory as I uploaded the files that are already there, though with a different FTP client. That transfer was not secure if it matters.

Here's the log:

Can you post a full log file (I'm interested in an initialization part). Also what is your server software?

I absolutely appreciate your help!

Sorry I have no clue. I've never seen the problem before.

Dunno if related, but I was with the same problem (but using scp in a MacOsX terminal) and it helped me: https://supportcenter.checkpoint.com/supportcenter/portal?eventSubmit_doGoviewsolutiondetails=&solutionid=sk38821

I just changed the directory to which I was trying to copy the file and poof! Magic.
