I can connect to my SSH server using WinSCP from Windows and by selecting the file protocol "SCP", selecting "SFTP" does not work" for this server. I am desperately trying to do the same from Linux. I have tried the following without success:
- thunar file manager: "ssh://" and "sftp://"
- Filezilla: SFTP does not work, there is no SCP option
- SSHFS: I get this error during the mounting "debug1: Exit status 127, remote host has disconnected"
I can connect with SSH on the command line without any problem but I would like to be able to browse the files with a GUI. Any advice?
$ sudo sshfs -odebug,sshfs_debug,loglevel=debug email@example.com:/ /mnt/test ... firstname.lastname@example.org's password: debug1: Authentication succeeded (password). ... debug1: Sending subsystem: sftp debug1: client_input_channel_req: channel 0 rtype exit-status reply 0 sh: /usr/libexec/sftp-server: not found debug1: channel 0: free: client-session, nchannels 1 debug1: fd 0 clearing O_NONBLOCK Transferred: sent 1904, received 1592 bytes, in 0.1 seconds Bytes per second: sent 35690.4, received 29841.9 debug1: Exit status 127 remote host has disconnected
Does sshfs require sftp on the other side? If yes, how does WinSCP do?
