I have tried to transfer files for two different High performance computing systems both use SFTP transfer protocols. The logs of both systems are attached below. The first system is located within the university network, but the second is located outside this universities network.

The problem as is indicated in the subject line occurs ONLY when transfering from the system OUTSIDE this universities network to my computer inside the network.

Any suggestions would be of great help.

You server has read less bytes that WinSCP has requested. This is in fact permitted by the standards as I was told, but it is very unsual. Is it reqular *nix server or is it some special kind?

To the error: Does it happen with every file greater than 4kB?

You may try new version 3.5, there were some changes to the topic. But I do not believe it would help. If it does or if error message is different (even if there are different numbers in the same message), please post a log file.

Martin:

Thank you the quick response. I have download and installed v3.5 and as you stated nothing obvious changed.

In response to your first question the server I am logging into it is an SGI Origin 3800.

In response to the second question, Yes, but it takes longer for the error to appear (on screen, no surprise there), see log below

Well this is suprise for me. I've understood it in the first case, when problem occured immediatelly. But I do not understand, why your server has read requested number of bytes for the 3.5 Mb of data and only then it decided to return less. Does the problem occur with every file? By change: is the file changing on the server while you download it?

Sorry about the previous response being a little flippant concerning the delay, I was specifically referring the delay as being caused by the SIZE of the file and NOT by a programming change.

In response to the first question, YES! All files tested will cause the response (see log below) and as with the last tests there is a visible delay (meaning that after the copying file window pops up there is a small delay of maybe a couple of seconds, this appears to be related to the size of the file, the larger the file the longer the delay)

In response to the second question, NO or more correctly not to my knowledge or in anyway that I can tell, Change only referred to the upgrade not correcting the problem as you had hinted at in the first reply.

Question: I do not know the exact process by which the two computers are talking to each other, but is it possible that the transfer buffer on the remote computer is reporting that its buffer is empty BEFORE the buffer on the my computer has received all of the data packet and therefore the software responds with the error of an incomplete transfer?

Sorry about the previous response being a little flippant concerning the delay, I was specifically referring the delay as being caused by the SIZE of the file and NOT by a programming change.

No problem, I've undestood it. I was refering to your previous log:
Code:
Received incomplete data packet before end of file, offset: 3767425, size: 3201, requested: 4096

From the offset I can see that more that 3mb was already transfered corretly. In all your other logs I see that even the first packet (few kilobytes) was smaller than requested. The second case I can understand, I just wonder what conditions caused the succesful transfer of 3mb in the first case. If I know it I may be able to make modification, so it works always.

Quote:
In response to the first question, YES! All files tested will cause the response (see log below) and as with the last tests there is a visible delay (meaning that after the copying file window pops up there is a small delay of maybe a couple of seconds, this appears to be related to the size of the file, the larger the file the longer the delay)

But I suppose that in the case when 3mb were transfered, you must have seen copy progress dialog for some time before the error happened?

Quote:
Question: I do not know the exact process by which the two computers are talking to each other, but is it possible that the �transfer buffer� on the remote computer is reporting that it�s buffer is empty BEFORE the buffer on the my computer has received all of the data packet and therefore the software responds with the error of an incomplete transfer?

It is not so. The error happens on high level protocol (SFTP, not underlying SSH). SFTP packet starts with number indicating its length. So the packet smaller than requested is sent deliberately by your server. But not always (the 3mb case). As I have already said, it is not a bug of your server, it is just very unusual. I have never met this before, with exception of one special case of SSH server on embedded devbice with limited memory).

Anyway you can try older version of WinSCP prior to 3.4, which introduced "Significant acceleration of SFTP transfer performance." These older versions may work with your server. Or use the lastest version, but SCP protocol, if possible.
