"Cannot get real path" even though message is "Success"

WinSCP Version 3.8.2 (Build 330)
Local Host: Windows 2000 Professional
Remote Host: AIX 5.3.0.0

There are a couple remote directories that I'm unable to navigate into. It's not a plain vanilla permissions problem as I'm able to access the directory (and sub-directories and file) via command line ssh, sftp, etc.

Clicking on one these directories in WinSCP generates the following error.

Cannot get real path for '/rc_nfs'.
Unexpected OK response.
Error code: 0
Error message from server: Success
Request code: 16

Here are the log details...

Any help would be much appreciated. The local admin guys (Win and UNIX) have no ideas.[/code]

Re: "Cannot get real path" even though message is "Success"

From the log, it looks like a bug in the SFTP server.

Can't find the real path

Hi Matrin,

When i try to create folders(ex: /test/test1/test2/) in SFTP host i am able to create the test folder and test1 in inside the test folder.

Re: Can't find the real path

Please post a full log file showing the problem.

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. For posting extensive logs you may use pastebin or similar application. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you may email it to me. You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile. Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have emailed the log.

the log is showing the error you get when you try to change directories into a nested directory.

The user gets connected to their home dir, they make directory test and change to it. they then make dir test1 and when they change to it the get the error I have posted.

Re: I am having the same problem as NAG

Can you post (or email) Debug 2 level log file showing both creation of the directory and changing into the directory?

Hi Martin,

I have the same problem than bstuart, here is an extract of my log file; but it is pretty much the same as bstuart's (if you need the full log please let me know where can I send it)

< 2011-05-12 13:32:21.833 Status/error code: 4, Message: 2320, Server: Folder not found: /test/ftpin, Language:
* 2011-05-12 13:32:21.833 (ECommand) Error changing directory to 'ftpin'.
* 2011-05-12 13:32:21.833 Cannot get real path for '/test/ftpin'.
* 2011-05-12 13:32:21.849 General failure (server should provide error description).
* 2011-05-12 13:32:21.849 Error code: 4

* 2011-05-12 13:32:21.849 Request code: 16

Error message from server: Folder not found: /xxx/xxx
Request code: 16

Please attach a full log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

Can you enter that directory with any other SFTP client? If you can, please post its log file.

OK, FileZilla is irrelevant here, as it ignores the part of SFTP specification about using SSH_FXP_REALPATH request. What about OpenSSH sftp client?
