Topic "moving remote directories on mountpoints"

Hi,
I'm having difficulty moving remote directories on a remote server with WinSCP versions 3.8.2 and (beta) 4. I have no problems moving directories within the home directory, however I receive:
Quote:

General failure (server should provide error description).
Error code: 4
Error message from server: Failure
Request code: 18

when I try to move to a mount point '/vault' on the server. The mount point I believe is in a different physical location, and I looked at the /etc/fstab file to read:
Quote:

gridstore:/vault /vault nfs rw,hard,bg,intr,nfsvers=3,tcp,rsize=32768,wsize=32768 0 0

I can move the 'moveme' directory remotely using a terminal, for example
Quote:

mv /home/user/moveme /vault/user/

but not with WinSCP. I'm unfamiliar with the SCP protocol, but is what I request impossible? Is this a bug? Thanks!

OpenSSH SFTP server does not allow moving files across filesystems. Note that you use SFTP, not SCP. However it would probably neither be possible with SCP.

Thanks, that worked! I was using SFTP before, but I now tried switched my login settings to SCP, and now I can move stuff between the NFS mounts!
