Can't copy files to ESX server using Winscp
Posted on 2009-04-13
So far I'm having an issue copying files over to my ESX server 3.5 using Winscp. From what i understand the FTP service was removed from ESX 3.5 due to security reasons. And the only way to copy files to it is through a SSH channel.
SSH has been enabled in ESX server
I've been trying to copy/sftp a 4 meg file over ESX server from a workstation and each time starts out okay but then hangs and gives me a "abort" box saying that the host has not responded in 15 secs. Even if i say reconnect it gives me the same pop up a few seconds later.
However copying files from ESX server over to my workstation via Winscp works great. No problems. Any size files get copied over.
Funny thing copying a file that's less than 500kb from the workstation to ESX server using Winscp seems to work but large fails.
I'm not sure if i'm configuring winscp wrong or there's a setting i'm missing in ESX server.
