SFTP: Server Error (2) No such file or File not found

This error can occur when the RemotePath specified does not exist on the server.

If you encounter this error when attempting to download a file, this could mean that the value specified for RemotePath does not exist on the server.

If the RemotePath starts with a "/", then it will be an absolute path. For instance: "/home/user/testdir".

If it does not start with a "/", then it will be relative to the current directory. For instance "testdir" would be equivalent to "/home/user/testdir" if the user's home directory is "/home/user".

If you want to specify the RemotePath as the current directory you log in to (that is your login directory) you should set the RemotePath to either the absolute path ("/home/user") or a "." indicating the current directory.

This error can also occur because the account you're connected with does not have read permission for the RemotePath in question.
