Although the SFTP URL is correctly set-up, files are not getting attached.

The issue can be reproduced with the following steps:
1. Navigate to PeopleTools > Utilities > Debug > PeopleTools Test Utilities.
2. Attempt to Attach a file using the URL ID for the SFTP site.
3. The file does not attach

The following error is received in the FILETRANSFER log:
"* Connection #0 to host left intact
* Remote file not found
* Closing connection #0"
