I have the same problem, but the issue is not related to SocketPermission, which Rackspace Cloud grants. The problem is that the Rebex SFTP library demands FileIOPermission, even if I am using Streams and not file names in my API calls. Actually the Connect method fails because it requires FileIOPermission.
Is it possible to have a version which does not require FileIOPermission?
Here's the stack trace: why do you try reading the Assembly location? Is that for licensing purposes? It just does not work.
