It sounds like there might be an ACL on the FTP server blocking the OS X
box.  Perhaps check the FTP server config as well as the inetd (or whatever
its equivalent in Solaris is) config to ensure that the Apple boxes IP isn't
denied.

Subject: sftp error


Hi list,
      I have a client, Mac OSX >10.2., who is attempting to sftp to a SUN
server and is not successful.. The user received the following error;

[localhost:~]www% stfp -oport=8080  -sftp='/usr/local/libexec/sftp-server'
www () servername com
www () servername's passwd:
connection closed

As this user name I can connect to the same machine from
Solaris(Sparc&_x86), Windows2000/XP, and linux but not OS X. Has anyone
perls of wisdom they could share?
