    Hello,

    We have an issue with uploading files with Fetch.
    We get the following error message:

    **************************
    Fetch could not put “TESTFILE.pdf” because the SFTP server says you do not have the required permissions.

    Contact the server administrator if you think you should have permission to take this action.
    Server responded: “Permission denied”

    The file is uploaded.
    If we use other software we do not have this problem.

    Do you have a solution for this issue.

    Hi,

    I don't have a solution, unfortunately. As part of the upload process Fetch opens the destination file on the server and asks the server for the open file's status (using the SSH2_FXP_FSTAT command), and apparently this server does not allow that command.

    Thanks,
