Description (last modified by dkocher)

HI! I have a problem to connect to my vps running PLESK and at the same time sftp under mysecureshell server.

With plesk , to able the webhosting users to access with ssh/sftp i need to comment the line #Subsystem sftp /usr/lib/openssh/sftp-server withing sshd_config file.

In this way all webhosting sftp users and not webhosting users using mysecureshell can connect to different sftp enviroments, the first managed by plesk and the second managed by mysecureshell system.

Now...all sftp client with this my configuration, like winscp, filezilla, dreamweaver etc etc fine at the same time with mysecureshell accounts and sftp accounts on webhosting plesk,

ciberduck.... perform a fast login and fastlogout from system managed from mysecureshell! when cyberduck try to connect, i have this log on the server:

Accepted password for digital-music-project from ip port 49910 ssh2
pam_unix(sshd:session): session opened for user digital-music-project by (uid=0)
subsystem request for sftp failed, subsystem not found

and perform the logout!

I have tryed to modify the sshd_condig with sftp subsystem enabled and cyberduck work fine, but with the open ssh sftp subsytem disabled i cant connect!

There is a way to resolve this issue?!

Thanksyou very much in advance! Regards.

  • Description modified (diff)
  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Summary changed from ch.sudo.cyb ERROR ch.cyberduck.core.sftp.SFTPSession - Connection attempt canceled to Subsystem request for sftp failed

Are you sure the path to the sftp-server binary is correct? The server log clearly says it cannot be found at the location given.

Hi Thanks for your response. I have solved under plesk 9.3 chanching the sftp-path like this:

Original: Subsystem sftp /usr/lib/openssh/sftp-server

Plesk sftp chroot enviroment: /usr/lib/sftp-server

Thanks. Regards.
