Ok, the saga continues...

This is the information I have back from the client:

'We restrict external logins to sftp connections only and chroot the users into their home directories, i.e. you don’t see “/home/mediatech” when you log in, you just see “/”. Now the problem arises when you are chrooted, in this case the command line sftp won’t connect, when you are not chrooted command line sftp works fine. Unfortunately this server is shared with other external customers so it is considered good practice to have all accounts chrooted.

I can’t find anything about why this is the case or how to fix it but I have found that psftp (command line sftp that comes with Putty) works. As far as I can see psftp is a generic command line sftp client that does everything Openssh sftp does. I assume that it would integrate into Perl scripts exactly the same as sftp would.'

So my question is - Can I get Net::SFTP::Foreign to work with Putty psftp? If not is there another module I could use?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
