I have a server I'm trying to connect to and keep getting the follwing error. It works fine if I use Filezilla, but when I use your library I get the following error message. The directory I'm trying to change to is a aliased directory on their side. I can change to a directory just fine if it's not an aliased directory. Using your Simple Winform SFTP client app can see the folder, but won't let me change to it.

Thanks for the quick response! The type of SFTP server I’m trying to connect to is Axway, Secure Transport MFT. I tried this new version and am receiving the same result.

This might be caused by an issue in some versions of WS_FTP server. We added a workaround for this to Rebex SFTP, it will be released in a week or two. Is this WS_FTP server as well? If you don't know, try moving the LogWriter property assignment before the call to Sftp.Login and it should be possible to tell based on the log.

I will send a current build of Rebex SFTP to your e-mail to try in a few minutes - this should solve the issue.
