However, I can drag a file from the local root and drop it on top of the host directory and the transfer works. So whether running the script shown below or manually navigating to the site, I get an error trying to change the host directory for an unknown reason.
The script I ran is:
put "Client Report.pdf"
When I do the same site access using Filezilla set to SSH2 protocol, I can pop in and out of the remote directory with no issues on the same site, which tells me it's possible to do. I'm not 100 percent sure that all of the more granular settings in WinSCP are right. However, on my locally run SFTP site even with WinSCP I can easily get into and out of the host directory. So not sure why this destination server is being fussy or exactly what the real story is.
In case this helps, here's the section of the log that shows the error.... Any clues would be greatly appreciated!
