sshmitm.forwarders.sftp module

class sshmitm.forwarders.sftp.SFTPBaseHandle(session: Session, plugin: Type[SFTPHandlerBasePlugin], filename: str, flags: int = 0)

Bases: SFTPHandle

close() None

When a client closes a file, this method is called on the handle. Normally you would use this method to close the underlying OS level file object(s).

The default implementation checks for attributes on self named readfile and/or writefile, and if either or both are present, their close() methods are called. This means that if you are using the default implementations of read and write, this method’s default implementation should be fine also.

read(offset: int, length: int) Union[bytes, int]

Read up to length bytes from this file, starting at position offset. The offset may be a Python long, since SFTP allows it to be 64 bits.

If the end of the file has been reached, this method may return an empty string to signify EOF, or it may also return SFTP_EOF.

The default implementation checks for an attribute on self named readfile, and if present, performs the read operation on the Python file-like object found there. (This is meant as a time saver for the common case where you are wrapping a Python file object.)

Parameters:
  • offset – position in the file to start reading from.

  • length (int) – number of bytes to attempt to read.

Returns:

data read from the file, or an SFTP error code, as a str.

write(offset: int, data: bytes) int

Write data into this file at position offset. Extending the file past its original end is expected. Unlike Python’s normal write() methods, this method cannot do a partial write: it must write all of data or else return an error.

The default implementation checks for an attribute on self named writefile, and if present, performs the write operation on the Python file-like object found there. The attribute is named differently from readfile to make it easy to implement read-only (or write-only) files, but if both attributes are present, they should refer to the same file.

Parameters:
  • offset – position in the file to start reading from.

  • data (str) – data to write into the file.

Returns:

an SFTP error code like SFTP_OK.
