Re: sftp



fixed

Scott,

Our parent corp has some software for blocking what they call "non
work related sites". Yours is not the first I've had issues with.
I did get a copy of the pdf and looks pretty straight forward. I took
this class with you at Common several years ago. Just never had
the requirement to implement. Thanks for the response.
btw - the only reason I did ftp on port 22 to this site was to verify
they really meant SFTP. I've had specs before that were mislabelled.
Also, this does have user & password in the specs. I see in your
presentation this is not the preferred method, but it is what it is.
These specs are standard for all the companies reporting to this
state government agency (site & specs hosted by a contractor).

Subject: Re: sftp


My web site for OpenSSH is working for me. Can you try again?

You say you tried just using 'just ftp connection on port 22'. This is not valid, you need to use an SFTP client. SFTP is actuallly an "FTP-lookalike" front-end for SSH. So under the covers it uses a completely different network protocol than FTP.... there's no way FTP will work, here.

IBM provides a port of the OpenSSH product for IBM i. OpenSSH is a cross-platform tool available for Windows, Linux, Unix, Mac, and IBM i (via PASE) and is used in 85% of the SSH implementations on the Internet. So, it's a very mainstream approach.

The page on my web site should explain how to use it...
