ovftool.http.curl SSL connect error

When I try to deploy an OVA file from an FTP location I get the following error:

ovftool.http.curl SSL connect error

2016-06-30T01:45:02.824-04:00 verbose [7FABCE9A4700] [Originator@6876 sub=Default] Unknown command on stdin:

Is there a way to specify a SFTP location? I tried to provide SFTP but it only accepts FTP/http/https

Any advise is appreciated.

I found that the error 'Unknown command on stdin' is associated with the use of the  --machineOutput option. In that mode the tool monitors STDIN for an abort message. When running from ansible the tool seems to get messages on STDIN which it does not understand and writes these lines to the log.
