Re: WinSCP will not open a symbolic link

You do have enabled resolving symlinks? Also what protocol do you use? If SFTP, what version?

Hello,

i have the same problem.
I have CopSSH 1.4.3 running on Windows Server 2003. WinSCP is version 4.0.4.
Neither the "my home" symlink created by CopSSH nor the symlinks created by me work. This error happens only if the symlink leads outside the CopSSH directory.
Other clients as Putty etc. can follow these symlinks.

Error Code when tryong to open these Symlinks with WinSCP is:
No such file or directory.
Error code: 2
Error message from server: No such file
Request code: 7

Any chance of having a test account on the system? It looks like a server-side bug, but I would like to verify that.
