Blogger.com publishing fails using SFTP
I had a difficult time getting Blogger.com to publish my blog to my host using SFTP. I was receiving the following error message:
"005 Unable to connect to SFTP server: Session.connect: java.net.SocketTimeoutException: Read timed out".
Oddly I was able to connect using my own SFTP client. When I went to run SSHD in debug mode to see if I could find any hints of the problem I had to stop the normal SSHD and XINETD from running. I ran SSHD in debug mode and Blogger.com published without any problem. So I started SSHD and XINETD again and Blogger.com published without any problem too!
I guess the Microsoft Windows method of solving problems (i.e. turn off the car, roll up the windows, start the car again) works in Linux sometimes too.
