SFTP/SSH/SCP file transfer to/from 3560 switch

I am trying to transfer files to

3560 switch using one of the above protocols.  I can connect to the switch via ssh

successfully for day to day mgmt.  however when I run

WinSCP of filezilla I am

unable to establish a connection.  I can authenticate successfuly but than receive the following error.

"Cannot initialize SFTP protocol. Is the host running a SFTP server"

As far as I can tell this should be possible or am I missing something?  Thank you

debug and partial config below

Re: SFTP/SSH/SCP file transfer to/from 3560 switch

Hi,

3560 switches do not support SFTP. WinSCP uses SFTP by default for connections. Hence the error.

3560 switches do support TFTP/FTP for the above, so use a TFTP/FTP server instead.
