Hello,

it seems that SFTP module running on a NW65SP3+ (NOES) server has a
problem when connecting to a server with "NCP Packet Signature Option"
set to 3 (require packet signatures). When I'm trying to access such a
remote server (successfully authenticated to a server with signature
level 2), it fails and I can see the following line in a log file
(sftp-server.log):

19 Aug - 19:18:29[0012622323] <0> error: server_relative_path() Failed
to create path context on SERVER/VOLUME:/. rc: 115, errno 1, h_errno:
997, clienterrno: -684

With this option set to 3 on a server which SSHD/SFTP-SRV is running on,
I can't connect at all and can see the following lines in a log file
(sshd.log):

19 Aug - 20:00:44[0012668465] <0> debug3: authorize_sftp(remote)
calling create_identity(NULL, 'cn=remote.o=org', <password>, NULL,
XPORT_TCP, 427b036c)

to create path context on cn=remote.o=org. rc: 115, errno 7, h_errno:
997, clienterrno: -684

When looking for error description in eDirectory documentation, I found
this (-684 FFFFFD54 SECURE NCP VIOLATION):

....wondering what has it to do with IPX protocol?

---
I assume this is a bug and should be fixed. It's also possible that some
underlying interface is responsible for this problem (LibC?), but I'm
not sure.

Thanks,
