I'm attempting to SSH to GlobalSCAPE Secure FTP Server. The server is running Windows 2003 and GloablSCAPE Secure FTP Server 3.3.1.

My client is running Vista SP2 and putty 0.60.0.0.

I recieve the following message after correctly entering my username and password.

login as: greg
GlobalSCAPE Secure FTP [email protected]'s password:
Server refused to allocate pty

Any suggestions?

Cheers

  • Is the globalscape ftp server designed to support only scp/sftp? ssh is typically for interactive sessions while scp/sftp have a specific subset of the ssh protocol that is designed to support transfering files.

As Chris said, Globalscape is just an SFTP server, not a general SSH server. It won't accept connections from ssh clients. See this knowledgebase article.
