I need to set up SFTP to a remote system. The documentation I have isnot specific and does not identify the setup for transmission and
receiving. It appears the documentation I have is for receiving files using
SFTP but maybe that is needed irrespective.
To me, this leaves a lot of open questions and guesswork what you want to
achieve. Please be more specific, from a workflow-view, and less a
My question is if we are transmitting files to remote systems, do I needto create the user ID and home folders on my system?
No. If your system is initiating the connection, it needs to authenticate
against the remote system with username and password, or (preferred)
cryptographic key-files. If the remote system needs to contact your system,
you obviously need a user and password, or (preferred) authenticate with
cryptographic key files instead of a password.
It is *not* a question of transfer direction but of connection initiation.
Will the remote system need to access the source system?
Depends on the workflow to establish. Please elaborate.
