Hello all,

Im trying to use curl to download files using SFTP on a Sun Solaris 8 server.


I'm susscesfully compiled the curl and libcurl library 1.17.1 with libssh2-0-17 and openssl-0.9.8f shared libraries.


When I try something like:

curl -v "sftp://username:password@server.domain/filename.ext

The output is


* About to connect() to server. domain 22 (#0)

* Trying connected

* Connected to server.domain ( port 22 (#0)

* Failure establishing ssh session

* Closing connection #0

curl: (2) Failure establishing ssh session


Using the sftp unix command works fine, establishing the SFTP conection authenticating by user/password without problems



Thanks in advance
