Problem: I try to use sftp, but am unable to connect. I am able to login,
but after that things to seem to go awry. On the server, I run sshd in
debug mode and see the following:
Accepted password for saiello from 127.0.0.1 port 605
debug1: session_new: init
debug1: session_new: session 0
debug1: Exec command 'sftpserv'
debug1: Entering interactive session.
debug1: fd 7 setting O_NONBLOCK
debug1: fd 7 IS O_NONBLOCK
debug1: fd 9 setting O_NONBLOCK
debug1: End of interactive session; stdin 0, stdout (read 0, sent 0), stderr
debug1: Received SIGCHLD.
debug1: Command exited with status 127.
debug1: Received exit confirmation.
On the client screen I see the following:
sftpserv: not found
read: Interrupted system call
It appears the sshd is trying to call and external program 'sftpserv'. I do
not have such a file on my system. I tried copying /usr/sbin/sftp-server to
/usr/bin/sftserv. that stopped the sftserv error, but the screen does not
respond. I copied in.ftp, and that works, but doesn't work properly....
SO obviously I am missing something.
