Steve, if you're doing a lot of this I suggest you look at the TransferAnywhere product. It does secure FTP plus lots of other transfers and makes it real simple to get setup and their support is very good at helping you figure out any problems

Subject: SFTP

Once again, we're attempting to use SFTP (yes, the one in SSH) to connect to
a business partner's server. I've done the ssh-keyscan and have gotten
their public key (I think) and have done ssh-keygen and created my
private/public keys (I think). Do they have to install my public key on
their server?

When I 'call qp2term' and enter 'sftp myuserid@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx', I get the
following response:

Connecting to ftp.theirserver.com...
Permission denied, please try again.
Permission denied, please try again.
Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-with-mic,password).
Connection closed

I presume that I'm connected but don't have access to something on their
end. Are the 3 'permission denied' messages a result of a 'retry' or do I
not have access to 3 things or what?

The business partner knows less about SFTP than I do (if that's possible),
so they're no help.

Thanks,

Steve
