I have a system using your product Tectia performing an SFTP put to/on my server. I asked whether they could login via SFTP, then CD to the drop directory to put the files. Their response was Tectia can not perform a CD when logging in via SFTP.

Please confirm/deny.

Thanks in advance, Bilal

Hi Bilal,

Changing directories within sftp is certainly supported by Tectia sftp clients. However access the respective directories has to be explicitly configured on the server as well.

Is this a Tectia client connecting to a Tectia Server?

If using Tectia Server you'll need to create virtual folders for the directories you want them to access. See for example: http://productdocs.ssh.com/support/documentation/online/ssh/adminguide/61/server-f-services.html

Roman ... No, this is a not a Tectia Client / Service connection. I have given the client sftp server the proper access to login, perform a cd into a specific directory to perform the sftp (basic sftp configuration for peforming a put). It was strange when they said the Tectia product could not perform the cd.

Thanks for the information. Bilal
