We converted some of our ftp to sftp using ssh.
Stored users and passwords no longer used, now use private and public keys.
A good IBM doc is 538212497 - Configuring the System i SSH, SFTP, and SCP Clients to Use Public-Key Authentication
Also a good redbook SSHredp4163 - Securing Communications with OpenSSH on IBM i5/OS

Subject: Using SFTP (NOT FTP)
Before I forget, we are on V5r4
I have been tasked to use SFTP - not FTP I have used ftp for many years, but NEVER used SFTP before.
The certificates etc. have all been loaded (if I am understanding things correctly).
I am using the software WinSCP and can see the other sites, along with the different directories and a test file for me to use.
My question is:-
Can the commands used in ftp also be used in sftp?
If not - does someone have a web page they can point me to that will explain how I can see what is in the directory of the other server and how to get those files if needed?
As always - I would be eternally grateful for any and all responses
