Could I get more information on the bug in Tectia 6.2.3 when transferring files > 32KB? The default is to use streaming and if the account on the server does not have a valid shell, the session errors out. When will this be fixed or in what version is it fixed?

Are you using SFTP?

If the user doesn't have a shell, check that the "exec-directly" option is set to "yes" in the ssh-server-config.xml (it be should by default).

The exec-directly attribute is only applicable to the sft-server-g3 subsystem on Unix. The default value is yes, which means that the server will launch sft-server-g3 directly without invoking the user's shell. Note that this will allow the user to run file transfers even if a dummy shell, such as /bin/no-shell, is specified in the user account. When the value is no, the server launches the user's shell which then executes sft-server-g3. All other subsystem applications are run as if exec-directly="no" would be specified. For these subsystems it is not allowed to specify exec-directly="yes".

An example configuration:

<subsystem type="sftp" action="allow" audit="no" exec-directly="yes" />

Hopefully this helps!
