Description (last modified by dkocher)

I get the following error message when I try to open or upload to our sftp folder "biopictures"

Failures The last action could not be completed due to the following errors:

I/O error: Listing Directory failed
Illegal sftp packet len: 34443

Our webmaster guy says there's nothing wrong on his end. I don't know how to correct the problem. I can use the program "Transmit" with no hassles. What the duck?

in case someone else needs a solution... So what I had was a simple echo note on my .bashrc file. and deleting it fixes the problem.

Hmmm I'm having the same problem. I'd love to know more details about the .bashrc file. Where is it? Or does it have to be user-made?
