Hello, I am trying to use the sftp tools to upload a file using SFTP. using the same credentials I can upload a file using Filezilla. However, using wwSFTP I get an access denied. Note, I CAN connect and I CAN change directory via FtpSetDirectory, and I CAN get a list of files on the site via FtpListFiles. However, FtpSendFileEx fails with an -1 - Permission Denied. I am using client Tools v6.1


loFtp = CREATEOBJECT("wwSftp")
loFtp.cFtpServer = lcFTPURL
loFtp.nFtpPort = 22
loFtp.cusername = lcFTPuser
loFtp.cPassword = lcFTPpwd
loFtp.ftpConnect() &&sucess
loFtp.FtpSetDirectory('inventory-files') &&success
loFiles = loFtp.FtpListFiles("")  &&success
  ? loFile.Name
lnResult = loFtp.FtpSendFileEx(paramFileName,paramFileName)  &&fail. Permission denied.

Since I can upload via Filezilla using the same credentials I suspect I may be missing some setting in wwSFTP?

Am I eligible to upgrade to West Wind Client Tools 7? Would this make a difference?

Best regards and thank you! Robert.

Make sure your path name is correct for the upload. My guess is that you're perhaps not providing the path correctly. It should be in the form of:

relativeFolder/filename.ext or /root/folder/filename.ext.

Also if you're using relative folders, make sure you're in the folder you're expecting to be in.
