Always requests SFTP subsystem

Description (last modified by daisagah)

Hello!

Please fix your SCP implementation. Although I changed the preferences for SSH file transfer to SCP:

$ plutil -p ~/Library/Preferences/ch.sudo.cyberduck.plist | grep -i scp
  "ssh.transfer" => "scp"

Cyberduck still tries to connect to the sftp-subsystem: /var/log/secure

Jan  3 14:13:44 <hostname> sshd[7827]: pam_unix(sshd:session): session opened for user <userid> by (uid=0)
Jan  3 14:13:44 <hostname> sshd[7835]: subsystem request for sftp
Jan  3 14:13:44 <hostname> sshd[7835]: subsystem request for sftp failed, subsystem not found
Jan  3 14:13:44 <hostname> sshd[7827]: pam_unix(sshd:session): session closed for user <userid> 

The sftp-subsytem is disabled on the server on purpose. Although SCP should be used Cyberduck is still composing the connection URL like:

sftp://<userid>@<hostname> .... and not scp:// ...

This may cause this issue.

Until this is fixed. SCP connections are broken. Requesting immediate fix. Even the nighty builds have the same bug.

Best Regards.

  • Milestone 4.5 deleted
  • Summary changed from Cyberduck always requests SFTP subsystem to Always requests SFTP subsystem
  • Type changed from defect to enhancement

We only provide the option to use SCP for file transfers but we always request the SFTP subsystem for directory listings.

Hmm..

That is unfortunate. Are there plans to fix this by using a SSH connection and a »ls« command for directory listing?

Best Regards.

We have no immediate plans to implement this option.
