Dear Expert,

When I tried to upload the file from unix machine to remote window ftp server in Perl script, my perl script dies since the code catches the $CHILD_ERROR with value 1536 from the system call even the file is transfered to the ftp server completely.  

Then I tried to do the same thing from the unix command line, and the following is what I have:

I am using public key authorization.
>sftp user@serveraddress
GlobalSCAPE Secure FTP Server * UNREGISTERED COPY *
sftp> put test.txt
test.txt                      |  238B |  238B/s | TOC: 00:00:01 | 100%
chmod_dest_before_transfer: ././test.txt (dst): no such file (server msg: 'File not found')

The first line tells us that the file is transfered completely. But I don't know what the second line means, and I am suspecting that the error caught in the script is from this second line.

Could anyone help on this?

Thansk,
Hanqian

Current our client sftp software for Unix has the issue when sftp file to the window ftp server. It tries CHMOD command after transferring fiels , but secure SFTP Windows servers do not support  that command, so system call returns error. We ignore this error for now in perl script.  We are installing new version soon. We hope that it may resolve this issue.

Thanks,
Hanqian

You might also want to look at the Net::SFTP module for perl:

I don't have an answer as to why your sftp client tries to do a chmod command without you explicitly issuing the command, but instead of doing a system call, have you tried or considered using the Net::SFTP module?
