WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I'm connecting to the WF servers with the Cyberduck 4.0.2 on OS X, and though a successful SFTP connection is being made each time, it never gets to a directory listing. (Even if I make sure that it goes to the pathname /home/[username]/.) I've tried on other servers, and Cyberduck has no problem with them, and an FTP connection to WebFaction works normally as well, and I can SSH to WebFaction via command line without any problems. I can't tell if the SFTP connection is being closed immediately after opening, but I suspect the problem is on the server side. Anyone else have this problem?

If you are still experiencing problems with SFTP, you might want to open a support ticket so we can take a look.

I know this is an old post, but I do have the same problem right now (SFTP directory listing is not finishing, FTP works fine). If you had a solution for this (and you remember) please share it. Thanks.

Does another client work, such as Filezilla?

I tried FileZila (Active and Passive mode), Cyberduck and Shell (Terminall), same answer

Try shell with verbosity and send us a support ticket with the output.

ssh -vv you@webxx.webfaction.com
