RE: SFTP - How to delete a file

I never tried the test suits. In the test directory, I don't see a
makefile for mingw32, and hence know no way to get it compiled under

Any mingw32 experts out there, can you please run this test 612 or even
fix the SFTP error in the later versions?

Well, test case 612 tests the rm command and it works on the autobuild
systems. I don't know if anyone else has tried it under mingw32--maybe
there is a problem there. Are you able to run the test suite under
