sftp - "received message too long"

I am trying to sftp into a webhosting server but I keep getting a "received message too long: 141628883"

After googling it, it appears to be some issue with .bashrc but I am still unable to resolve the error.

Anyone solve this error before on slackware?

I think it may have to do with a welcoming message popping up after the successful login.
sftp doesn't like welcoming messages.

Try to ssh in that server and see if any welcoming message pops up. It should be started from within ~/.bashrc so you can then comment out the respective line from there.

If you find yourself not knowing what to do, please post here the welcoming screen from an ssh session as well as the contents of ~/.bashrc
