SFTP sometimes just hitting SSH app and sometimes Enhanced File Transfer

L2 Linker

I have an egress rule that permits port 22 which should include sftp. And for the 

most part it works. But I had a user go to a particular sftp site useing filezilla

and the PAN 5060 identified the traffic as "Enhanced File Transfer" and 

the traffic didn't hit the egress rule and was blocked. Why would filezilla/winscp

work fine - seen as plain ssh traffic - to most sites. But for one particular site

it fails with the PAN seeing it as "enhanced file transfer"? Is there any work-around

the client can do? It's an easy fix on my PAN but change control takes time and

I'm lazy. THX

@Shuttermed,

Um....Ya sure that the site they were trying to hit wasn't actually using EFT instead of a more traditional SFTP server? This is an actual product and if they are running a Globalscape server then the PAN is properly identifying the traffic.

The bpartner just told us SFTP. But maybe that's the issue.
