I am trying to use SecureBlackbox to upload files to HP's ELIT SSH SFTP server. I've made a .NET service which uses the SecureBlackbox SFTP classes (SBSimpleSftp.TElSimpleSFTPClient). ELIT seems to use some non-standard SFTP commands. Here is the User Guide - http://www.business-exchange.canada.eds.com/ELIT/Documents/SSH%20Server%20User%20Guide_V1%203.pdf.

I can connect successfully [TElSimpleSFTPClient.Open], but when I try to upload a file [TElSimpleSFTPClient.UploadFile], I get this error - "Please provide a valid SenderID".

I can successfully upload a file using a SSH client (PuTTY), which allows me to enter the appropriate custom command [put LocalFileName SenderID/RemoteFileName/./keeplf/].

My two questions are:
1) Do you know whether SecureBlackbox has ever been used successfully with ELIT?
2) Is there a way to send custom commands to the SSH SFTP server using SecureBlackbox?

Thank you for contacting us.

SFTP doesn't use textual commands, neither it has "put" operation. What you see (and enter) in putty is translated into "open remote file `SenderID/RemoteFileName/./keeplf/` , read data from LocalFileName, write the read data to the remote file, close both files".

So it seems that all you need to do is use `SenderID/RemoteFileName/./keeplf/` as a remote filename when calling UploadStream or UploadFile method of TElSimpleSFTPClient component.

Sincerely yours

Thank you for your response. I had tried this previously, but my syntax must have been incorrect. I tried it again after your suggestion, and the file uploaded successfully. I'm still having some issues with the uploaded file not being named correctly on the remote server, but I believe that's an ELIT issue, and nothing to do with SecureBlackbox. Thanks again for your help.
