telnet is disabled on remote server. Mostly, I feel it is not connectivity issue, it seems like I am missing something on script/command to rename file. While going through man pages of sftp, I got a command "rename file_1 file_2". But I think, it will rename bill.txt to bill.V01.txt first day. Next day when this script will run again and try to rename bill.txt to bill.V01.txt, rename will fail, as there is existing bill.V01.txt from yesterday's rename command.

See there can be various reasons why you are getting connection closed.
Do you get any output for this?
ssh user@server "date"

ssh doesn't works. But I can connect it sftp and do ls and run sftp commands on remote server

Are you trying to ssh to the same server where you claim the sftp works?

Yes. That is remote server

Sounds like ssh is disabled, and it's running an sftp-only SSH server.

Try the "rename oldname newname" command from within a connected sftp session.

Hi, Solaris_1977
would you mind to try
ssh -v  'mv bill.txt bill.V01.txt'

for more failed details?
