We have a remote machine on which there is an administrator account. Now using the Tectia GUI Client(quickconnect) from a different machine , it can login using the proper hostname and username in the format


for example. This works fine.

Even the the command

sftpg3  computer9\administrator@remotehostname

works fine. But when the same is done using Java API then authentication error 501 occurs. The sftp url in Java application is something like:


Is this correct way to specify the username prefixed like this in sftp ?.

I would like to further add that we have no problems when using domain accounts and the sftp protocol works fine in the java application.

Please ignore this question. This was solved by proper encoding in this case with %5c.
