I am trying to use sftp in batch mode. sftp version info is - sftp: SSH Tectia Client 6.0.12 on x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu Build: 50 Product: SSH Tectia Client License type: commercial SFT API: 2.0.3 (build

Running as sftp -B /tmp/cmds my_hostname

Gives error -

Opening connection to 'my_hostname'. error: Could not open connection to `my_hostname': Disconnected by application error: Aborting batchmode.

This is what you usually get if the client is unable to contact the server at all.

Are you able to reach the server without the batch mode? or using sshg3 ?


Just realized this could be failing because of user interaction. See this answer

I'm having the same error as the original post. I'm able to connect to the server when using sftp2 from the command line (sftp2 id@hostname). But when I use a batch file to run the script, i'm getting the following message: "error: could not connect to `hostname'"

We've upgraded from Tectia 4 to 6.0.12 and we're getting this error. Any idea what we're missing?

Can you enter this as a separate question? Also can you provide an example of the batch file that you're trying to run (after scrubbing any sensitive data)?

Also what are the version of the client and server involved? Did you upgrade both client and sever versions to 6.0.12 or just the server/client?
