When downloading a file from an SFTP Server using GetFile(), the progress simply stalls unless I set SftpOptions.UseLargeBuffers - the program enters the GetFile() function and then just stays there indefinitely without raising an exception or timing out or anything like that.

I need to understand why this is happening, can you help?

I'm using version 2.0.4060.0 of the libraries.

This is caused by a bug in Rebex SFTP 2.0.4060.0 related to SSH receive window size handling code. It has already been fixed in Rebex SFTP 2.0.4086. Please download the current version of Rebex SFTP, give it a try and let us know whether it solves the issue. Sorry for inconvenience!
