Subject: Re: Setting up SFTP for the first time

@Patrik, we will be sending files to the remote system. We do this today
with regular FTP. New hardware was implemented and it does not have FTP for
security reasons.

I will get the crypto key files.The question is which folders do I copy
them into?

It seems I need a user ID on the IBM i set up with a home folder for this
purposes. I guess that means the job has to be run with this user ID then.
This could be an issue and require "rewriting" the FTP unctions.

Darryl.

I need to set up SFTP to a remote system. The documentation I have
is
not 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
technical side.

My question is if we are transmitting files to remote systems, do I
need
to 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.
