Some SFTP server software has limitations to the functions they support with regard to buffer requests and block sizes during a GET operation, resulting in an unexpected server response. Why?


The block size or buffer requests may be causing an issue with the file transfer. You will need to find the correct combination of block size and buffer request.

At the host level Advanced tab configure these options:

  • BlockSize = 65535 – BufferRequests = On
  • BlockSize = 32767 – BufferRequests = On
  • BlockSize = 32767 – BufferRequests = Off
  • BlockSize = 65535 – BufferRequests = Off
