Hello,

I'm attempting to download some files via a script and manually, and each returns the same error every time. The file almost completes downloading before this message appears:

* 2010-09-22 11:34:56.143 Bad message (badly formatted packet or protocol incompatibility).
* 2010-09-22 11:34:56.143 Error code: 5
* 2010-09-22 11:34:56.143 Error message from server: Bad message
* 2010-09-22 11:34:56.143 Request code: 5

I've enabled logging during this event and here is the relevant snippet. Host and usernames have been obscured for security purposes. Any insight is greatly appreciated.

After some experimentation with the Putty SFTP client, the same error happens with it. This appears to be some issue with the current Putty version and the server. It is using an older version of OpenSSH. If anyone knows of a work around or solution to this it would solve some major headaches in a small automation project.
