Our customer swears that 'quote site recfm=fb,lrecl=160,blksize=27840' is valid for SFTP, and is supported by their sftp client/server software. Can you suggest any references I could quite to persuade them is not usually supported by SFTP?

You are right. QUOTE SITE sequence is not usually a SFTP command. It is a command of the Windows FTP console client and some other FTP clients such as WS_FTP.

I think the problem probably is that your client doesn't distinguish between FTP/FTPS/SFTP. Please redirect him to this site for information about these protocols.
