Greetings:

I've got a directory on my linuxbox that consistently times out when the directory listing is requested. I can access the directory fine on the shell, via samba, and via sftp on the linux command line, but psftp exhibits the same behavior.

I attempted to increase the timeout from 15 to 60 seconds, but as psftp shows, no duration is sufficient.

It appears that the client receives SSH_FXP_HANDLE and never receives a response after sending SSH_FXP_READDIR.

I've downloaded the latest version of PuTTY (0.59 at the time of this writing) and it exhibits the same behavior, so this may well be a PuTTY problem, but, truth be told, I'm not sure how to report it.

Following is the relevant log excerpt. The directory that doesn't seem to work is /site/web/hopfrog.pyrich.com/htdocs/Lilly. There's nothing abnormal about the directory that I can see.

Sorry. I have not idea what may go wrong. Have you tried to use SCP instead of SFTP?

Yes, SCP allows me to list the directory.

Should I report this behavior to Simon since it occurs in PSFTP as well?

I'm not sure if it is worth it. I doubt it is PSFTP related. But you can try it.
