Topic "sftp proxy error"

Author Message


I just downloaded WinSCP and am attempting to setup an FTP. I receive the following transfer when it tries to access the other server: SSE2636 Command rejected due to sftp proxy policy settings: SSH_FXP_INIT on new sftp connection I am new to all of this and have no idea what this means. Note: We are successfully connecting and transferring to this same server using Filezilla. I downloaded WinSCP so I could create a script and schedule the process. (again, all new to me) Any help would be greatly appreciated....

it's a bug in your server or SFTP proxy (whatever that is).

They suggest you must configure WinSCP to use SFTP version 3.

You can do this here:

To set this in scripting, see:
