Thank you for the log. It showed that the server sent malformed packet according to SFTP v4 specification (see section 5).

The received SSH_FXP_STAT packet contains SFTP flags: 0xB5

Which corresponds to fields:

SSH_FILEXFER_ATTR_SIZE              0x00000001
SSH_FILEXFER_ATTR_PERMISSIONS       0x00000004
SSH_FILEXFER_ATTR_CREATETIME        0x00000010
SSH_FILEXFER_ATTR_MODIFYTIME        0x00000020
SSH_FILEXFER_ATTR_OWNERGROUP        0x00000080

The fields and its corresponding values are:

int64    size          0x01000
string   owner         italgaswater
string   group         italgaswater
uint32   permissions   0x01F8
uint64   createtime    0x5C766C31
uint64   mtime         !!! not enough data

The solution is to report this issue to the server vendor, so the issue is fixed on the server.

As a workaround, please disable SFTP v4 by setting the Sftp.Settings.DisableSftp4 property to true.

Can you please post here what SFTP server you are using and which version?
It can be read from log (assign logger before calling Connect method). Locate line like this:

DEBUG Sftp(1)[9] SSH: Server is 'SSH-2.0-ServerSoftware_X.Y'.

Sorry, I can't provide anything beside the above. This is a already shipped application that I cannot modify anymore for now, unfortunately :-(.

We will add an option to the next version that will make it possible enable the existing mod_sftp workaround. This is just a guess, but perhaps it would help.

Please try enabling this with the latest R6.1 release and let us know whether it helps:
    Rebex.Security.Cryptography.CryptoHelper.SetOption(sftp.Settings, "EnableRedundantCreateTimeWorkaround", true); // 'sftp' is your instance of Sftp object
by (134k points)
Starting with Rebex SFTP R6.3, the workaround can be enabled using Sftp.Settings.EnableMissingCreateTimeWorkaround property.

Thank you very much. Just downloaded and changed my code to use the new property
