    Unable to connect with SFTP

    pwatvu Level 1
      I am trying to connect to a Linux server using SFTP. Contribute responds that the server is down or not accepting connections; however, other SFTP clients are able to connect without any issues. It appears that Contribute is attempting to open multiple connections to the server. The server has connection throttling in place, and if a special rule is put in for the client, then Contribute can connect. Unfortunately, then Contribute errors with "cannot verify your connection information". The home folder and permission are correct. None of my other SFTP clients are showing these problems.

      Any ideas on how many connections Contribute opens when creating the connection?
      What does the second error refer to?

            It's Sftp - OpenSSH on RHEL4.

              Any reason why every other SFTP client can connect but not Contribute?
