SFTP from UNIX to ALPHA Box (Stream_LF)

Hello,
I have a variable length record file that I am trying to SFTP from a UNIX box to a VMX Alpha box. I have no problem with any authenication. Every time I transfer the file, the file gets converted to a Stream_LF file layout on the VMS box. I have the logical on the VMS side (MULTINET_SFTP_TRANSLATE_VMS_FILE_TYPES) set to zero and that doesn't seem to help. I have also converted all LF to a CR and that's doesn't seem to help either. I understand that SFTP transfers in binary. Is it possible to use SFTP without the file being converted to Stream_LF? Any suggestions? Thanks, Barbara

libssh2_sftp_read(3)						  libssh2 manual					      libssh2_sftp_read(3)

NAME
libssh2_sftp_read - read data from an SFTP handle SYNOPSIS
#include <libssh2.h> #include <libssh2_sftp.h> ssize_t libssh2_sftp_read(LIBSSH2_SFTP_HANDLE *handle, char *buffer, size_t buffer_maxlen); DESCRIPTION
handle is the SFTP File Handle as returned by libssh2_sftp_open_ex(3) buffer is a pointer to a pre-allocated buffer of at least buffer_maxlen bytes to read data into. Reads a block of data from an LIBSSH2_SFTP_HANDLE. This method is modelled after the POSIX read(2) function and uses the same calling semantics. libssh2_sftp_read(3) will attempt to read as much as possible however it may not fill all of buffer if the file pointer reaches the end or if further reads would cause the socket to block. RETURN VALUE
Number of bytes actually populated into buffer, or negative on failure. It returns LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN when it would otherwise block. While LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN is a negative number, it isn't really a failure per se. ERRORS
LIBSSH2_ERROR_ALLOC - An internal memory allocation call failed. LIBSSH2_ERROR_SOCKET_SEND - Unable to send data on socket. LIBSSH2_ERROR_SOCKET_TIMEOUT - LIBSSH2_ERROR_SFTP_PROTOCOL - An invalid SFTP protocol response was received on the socket, or an SFTP operation caused an errorcode to be returned by the server.
