I'm trying to connect to my universities SFTP to work on a departmental website and I get the error that my connection is closed by the server with an exitcode 3. I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on exitcode 3? I tried a google search, a forum search here, and reading the wikis and I can't track this one down.

After browsing a bit more I noticed that posting the debug 3 usually helps so here it is:

I also found another thread detailing this same problem with an exit code 1 and he described not having shell access set correctly (I think). Could this be my problem, and if it is is this something that is fixed client-side or server-side?
