Duplicate SFTP Addresses (BT2016) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm getting this error: 

    Address: sftp.mycompany.com:22/outgoing is already present for ReceiveLocation xxx. 

    The way the FTP server works on the Linux system I'm connecting to is that the userid is used to connect to the proper SFTP site. 
    So we do have two sites both with /outgoing folders on the same SFTP server. 

    Is there anyway to get around this other than by doing a hostname?

  • Hi Neal Walters,

    For this issue, you can use different port for the address, for example: Address: sftp.mycompany.com:23/outgoing is already present for ReceiveLocation xxx.

  • DNS Alias, port or IP, unfortunately by design

  • The simple answer is to create separate file masks for each location.

  • *.x* and *.xml will do the trick?

  • That does work.  As long as these really resolve to separate locations, you shouldn't have any issues.

  • Cool, thanks

    We have had several user accounts on the same external ftp server in the past (no admin access) and we will probably see it again sometime in the future
