sftp over http

Post by njd » Mon Nov 05, 2018 4:18 am

Hi,

I am running the following command:

sftp -vv -oProxyUseFDpass=yes -oProxyCommand='ssh-proxyc -4v -p proxyserver:80 testcase.boulder.ibm.com 22' user@testcase.boulder.ibm.com

But we get the following error:

ssh-proxyc: Co:Z ssh-proxyc version: 1.0.1 2017-01-05
Copyright (C) Dovetailed Technologies, LLC. 2016-2017. All rights reserved.
ssh-proxyc: read failed (0/3): EDC5140I Broken pipe. (errno2=0x05FC0119)
FOTS2080 mm_receive_fd: recvmsg: expected received 1 got 0

FOTS3339 proxy dialer did not pass back a connection

Ý12.357¨ Connection closed

Any ideas what might be causing this?

ssh-proxyc supports SOCK5 proxy servers, not HTTP.

Is there any possibility in future that sftp might work over http proxy servers? Or will it only ever work with socks5 proxy servers?

IBM will be shipping our ssh-proxyc with z/OS OpenSSH, so we are going to defer to them for decisions regarding enhancements.
You may wish to contact them or perhaps open an RFE.
