SFTP on FileZilla Server

#1 Post by mikerain » 2019-11-12 19:54

I installed FileZilla Server 0.9.60 beta. I've seen conflicting posts about whether FZ Server can do SFTP. Can it?

FileZilla Server does NOT support SFTP (based on SSH2).

FileZilla Server supports FTP and FTPS (FTP over TLS/SSL).

You need an SSH daemon (SSHD) software. SFTP does not have anything to do with FTP. Personally, I'm using ProVide (commercial).

Free/OSS examples (use a search engine):

- OpenSSH
- Apache MINA SSHD
