SFTP Question

#1 Post by zeriitas » 2018-09-14 10:51

Hi guys,

just a quick question.
In our production enviorment we have a Filezilla server running which supports FTPS but some of our partners need to use SFTP in order to connect to us.
I read that filezilla doesnt support SFTP?
Does Pro server support SFTP?

Sorry for my bad english.

Thanks in advance guys :)

Both FileZilla Client and FileZilla Client Pro support SFTP.

FileZilla Server does NOT support SFTP. A Pro version of the Server doesn't exist.

May I ask why FileZilla Server doesn't support SFTP?

Unfortunately we need to look around for another FTP server solution because of the lack of SFTP support in FileZilla Server. :-(

While FTPS is just a thin layer of TLS around FTP, SFTP on the other hand has absolutely nothing in common with FTP(S). Sure, similar name and purpose, but that's where the similarities end.
