Hey Guys,
im new to this Project and my English Skills aren't the best cause Im not a native Speaker.I got the problem that i cant move Files from a Directory to another Directory. Everytime when I want to move a File I get an Exception.

Here is my Code Snippet
SftpClient sctmp=new SftpClient("","","");
I removed the Data for my Connection.My Connection dont fail cause i can get the list of Directorys and Files.

And Here is my Exception
   bei Renci.SshNet.Sftp.SftpSession.RequestRename(String oldPath, String newPath)
   bei Renci.SshNet.Sftp.SftpFile.MoveTo(String destFileName)
   bei SolidsSFTP.RemoteFile.movefile(String source, String Dest)
I hope u can help me and thanks for your feedback.

It seems like you doing it right but server for some reason returns "Failure" error.
It might be due to the wrong path, file does not exists, permission etc'.

might have a problem there but will need to know exact source and Dest names to try and recreate problem here.

Hope it helps,

Thanks for your fast feedback. I can get this fix by myself.I must ste a new Name for my File in the Destination String.

But now I get an SSHConnectionException after moveing an File is that normal ? The File is moved and my Connection get Closed.

I usually try to say what the reason for SshConnectionException. What else does it say?
Often it happens because server disconnects the connection for whatever reason. Sometimes for protocol issues which I can solve and sometimes for something else that I will need to investigate.
