Q&A 32: Error during sftp file upload with Limagito File Mover

Q: We have installed Limagito version v2020.11.21.0 with the Site+ license on a W2K19 server. When we try to transfer files to an external sftp server it doesn’t work out fine (Error during sftp file upload). The SSH connection seems fine to me , but the files won’t be uploaded. Unfortunately the other side can’t help me out and I can’t find out what is happening and why.

A: It’s look like the SFTP server is trying to use SFTP Version v4 but .. not correctly. The solution here is to only allow SFTP Version v3.

FYI: The customer is using our Second SFTP Vendor (CK).

Limagito File Mover SFTP v3 Only

Feedback from customer:
