I'm trying the SFTPServer Demo (Sshsftpserverdemo) application and I'm stumbling on the following problems:
1) SmartFTP do not list directory contents correctly (at all) when using SFTP v6. However, using v5 does work as expected.
2) WinSCP do not connect at all against the demo application.

Any suggestions?

WinSCP only supports versions up to 5 of SFTP protocol.
About SmartSFTP - i traced it's activity, our server for version 6 of protocol actually sending all directory items to SmartSFTP, but it doesn't want to show them. Possible reason is that demo itself doesn't send all the needed by SmartSFTP file attributes.
Have you any success with connection SmartSFTP to any other SFTP server, using version 6 of protocol?

Sure, but it should at least work with SFTP v5 of the protocol then?
- SmartFTP works (can connect to the demo) if you force it to v5 of the protocol.

WinSCP only says "Network error: connection refused"... It should work, right?
- Could you please check what's wrong (either with the demo application, or if it's something wrong with WinSCP)?

... either way it doesn't work :-(

I tried WinSCP agains our linux SFTP server and that worked.

The funny thing is that the "FindClose" event does not get fired during file list transfer when using SmartFTP SFTP v6.

No, I downloaded Titan FTP server, which supports v6 and it could not connect to that server either...
- It could not connect at all :-(

Our SFTP server demo works ok with WinSCP client, i've just checked it. Please check if sbSFTP1..sbSFTP5 protocol versions are enabled in demo. Also please check 'Use SFTP subsystem' checkbox in server settings.

About FindClose event - this action is initiaded on the client side, so it seems that SmartSFTP doesn't handle directory listing in a right way.

Could you please send me that demo?
- The one I'm using do not work with WinSCP :-(

But I can connect to the demo with other SFTP clients (FileZilla, SmartFTP) so I think I've configured the demo server correctly...

I'm using demo from the latest SBB build, which you could download from http://www.eldos.com/sbbdev/download/, or via 'My Control Center'

The one included in "Release: SecureBlackbox Transports VCL, source code, Windows installation - Version 6.0.144. Released on 2008-07-03."?
- I'm using that latest stable release and I cannot get the demo to work at all with WinSCP.

Or are you using the beta version?

I'm using the latest beta version, but I don't remember if something changed in demo since 6.0.144.
So I'm attaching it.

Hmmm... that demo was not compatible with the current stable SecureBlackbox...
- I'll just wait until the next release of SecureBlackbox comes out (if it doesn't take too long)... I mean, if you say it works it probably does :-)

... I'll just have to wait.

What do you mean that is is not compatible? Any error messages, or so?

I just built it with 6.0.0.144 without any problems, and also WinSCP connects normally to it.
