Full Version: SFTP: Unsupported protocol
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I just installed XBMC from the PPA.
When I follow the SFTP instructions on the wiki, the GUI tells me that it canĀ“t connect to my server.
The log writes this:

I have XBMC v11 (EDEN) so it should be supported right?
What am I doing wrong?
the ppa maintainer did the build without libssh then - blame him...
I downloaded XBMCbuntu, but in the liveCD version it's not working either.. :/
Can I add libssh in some way?
no it has to be done during buildtime ... i will ping a dev about it - thx.
Why not SCP instead of SFTP? If you can SSH into the XBMCBuntu box, then SCP should work just fine. If you can't SSH into the box, then something's wrong with your install.
pumkinut you didn't understand the problem...
It's missing in xbmc-packaging. Will ping amejia or handle it by myself Wink
Any progress on this? I'd like to access my music collection over SFTP from XBMC installed on Ubuntu from the PPA.

Thanks
Is their any update on this?

Thanks.
I'm thinking we need to find an unofficial build with this fix and any other major fixes and sticky it. Along with unofficial sources for nightlies and such.

nope, I checked the official ubuntu package and it is not disabling ssh. Seem there is no configure switch at all for it. Configure just checks for the presence of libssh and "silently" disables ssh support, in case its missing.
I didn't tell that the maintainer has switched it off. I said it wasn't there when he build it.

my latest testing package now includes sftp support. ppa:wsnipex/xbmc-xvba-testing
Note: this is Frodo Alpha5, not stable Eden
other then the name suggest, this also has much improved vpdau support, but not vaapi(not needed on AMD)

those same packages are also used in the xbmcbuntu 12 pre releases
