Description (last modified by dkocher)

I can't upload (sftp) directories with extended attributes. In particular, I find that directories with the '' attribute set (found using ls -@l or xattr) will not upload to a Redhat box. The Log window is empty after an upload try, but the Transfers window says

Transfer incomplete 0 B of 0 B

I cannot replicate this. Can you find any related output in the console.log (/Applications/Utilities/

Posting reply from email:

Can't find anything in the Console (looked in All Messages, Console Messages & system.log). Rebooted; no change. Tried both drag-and-drop and File>Upload...; no difference. Tried several different directories with the attribute; same behavior. AFAIK, I have no risky software installed (like an Input Manager). I do have a USB to serial kernel extension installed: ProlificUsbSerial.kext ver 1.2.1.

From the Transfers window:

URL:		sftp://nemesis/home/dave/tdavis
Local File:	/Volumes/wlan					<--- This doesn't look right, local directory is '/Users/tom/MATLAB/Work/wlan'

Sorry I didn't notice this before.

In all failed attempts, the Local File is listed as being in /Volumes. Partially successful uploads list the Local File path correctly. (I have quite a few transfers listed as 'Transfer incomplete', e.g. Transfer incomplete, 1.2 KB of 1.2 KB, but the transfer seems to be usable.)

Do you still have this issue in version 3.3?

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

Seems to be a similar issue to #3192.
