Another tap-spreadsheets-anywhere question. It really is an issue with paramiko I believe. When trying to access a file on SFTP I get SSHException - Error Reading SSH protocol banner. Any idea what to change on the server side? I have seen some stackover posts regarding some settings around timeout, auth_timeout, banner_timeout which I have tried. It seems to suggest network or resource within the SFTP server. Another question around this is how to handle the error in Meltano. Do the pipelines just retry if an error like this is raised?
