Dear Friends:
I am using the J2ssh API, I have written a java code to get an Sftpfile as:

sftpClient = ssh.openSftpClient();
List list =;
SftpFile sftpfile = (SftpFile) list.get(2);//get single SftpFile
SftpFileInputStream br = new SftpFileInputStream(sftpfile);

when I run the program, I get following error,
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ The file does not have a valid handle!

Can somebody help me out..
Thanks in advance !!!

Maybe you need to open the file first? Who do the various file checks say about the files existence and whatnot?
I agree. Here's the link:
