How can I disable SFTP? [message #638430] Thu, 11 November 2010 04:24 Go to next message

Hi,

I'm using Remote System Explorer and CDT to do remote C++ debugging.
I use the latest Helios distribution.

The problem is that when I start up the remote debugging I get the
following error message:

"Failed to connect SFTP subsystem: Remote host may not have sftp-server
installed : java.io.IOException: Pipe closed"

I don't have any sftp-server on the remote target, and we can't install
it either.

How can I disable the SFTP functionality?


Thanks,
Daniel

Hi Daniel,

not having SFTP is a frequent problem, you may be interested in the "SCP
files subsystem" contribution that's upcoming this year:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=213438

Until this is available, as a user of "standard" RSE, you can do this:
1. Define your connection as connection type "UNIX"
2. As subsystems, choose
FTP-Files, SSH-Shells, DStore-Process, SSH-Terminals
3. Right-click NOT the connection but the SSH-Shells subsystem
- choose connect in the context menu.

As a programmer (extender) of RSE, you can define a System Type (e.g.
"SSH-Shellsonly") which only registers the Shells subsystem but no files
subsystem.

Note that in order to do remote c++ debugging, you'll have to "somehow"
get your files onto the remote.

Cheers
Martin

Hmm.. interesting. I got this to work only once. After that, the only approach that consistently works is to use the RSE RCP plugin that is still in the incubation phase.

It would be nice if one could simply deactivate (uncheck) a subsystem that one does not need (or can not access) in the properties of the connection and the create wizard.

I am using RSE to launch a terminal against a Karaf OSGi container. It works perfectly except for the error about "Failed to connect SFTP subsystem". These errors are just annoying and could be easily prevented if one could disable the subsystem for this connection.
