I am using WinSCP 3.7.4, Explorer interface. When I connect to a server, I get the following error:
Error listing directory ....
No such file or directory.
Error code: 2
Error message from server: No such file
Request code: 11

The directory definitely exists on the server and security is set up so the user has full control. The SFTP server is provided my MKS,(A unix environment emulation on Windows) and its SSH is a ported version of OpenSSH.

From the log, I see the messages after an authorised connection has been established:

I have changed the EOL setting in Environment to CR/LF as resomended in FAQ's but still no luck... I notice the message in the logs about a potential bug and hope there is a work-around.

Any clues?

There is some problem with server configuration. SFTP requires that forward slashes are used. OpenSSH emulation on Windows follows that. I do not know why it does not in your case.

Diky Martine,

I tried changing the home directory in the account to use forward slashes but no change. The MKS server is based on OpenSSH but seems to be a bit dodgy. I will raise a support call to them.
