sftp/scp fails at connection, but ssh is OK.

sftp and/or scp may fail at connection time if you have shell
initialization (.profile, .bashrc, .cshrc, etc) which produces output
for non-interactive sessions. This output confuses the sftp/scp client.
You can verify if your shell is doing this by executing:

"ssh yourhost /usr/bin/true

If the above command produces any output, then you need to modify your

shell initialization.
