Does filezilla support the check file extension for sftp transfers?

#1 Post by Filezilla Newbie » 2021-02-13 19:15

It has been asked before regarding the extension but cant seem to find any mention whether filezilla is supported or not: https://serverfault.com/a/853365 - and if filezilla is supported, how would a client go about verifying each and ever download and uploads that they are the exact same file for both remote and local?

According to that answer, Bitvise seems to be the only windows solution that has support for it and from the looks of it, the other two are linux apps and appear to be way over the top of my head to configure it working...

The extension is all about SSH/SFTP server software.

FileZilla is a client, not a server. And FileZilla Server does not support SSH/SFTP at all.

FTP connection problems? Do yourself a favor and read Network Configuration.

Oh...so then the file hash verification would just be done serverside and filezilla would just show whether the downloaded or uploaded file is verified to be exact or not? And the FileZilla Server has no support for SFTP at all?

First, the FileZilla SFTP support is based on PuTTY's psftp component. Thus, you would have to actually convince the author of PuTTY for attempting to use "check file". The main implementation is, as I've read, a server thing.

And the FileZilla Server has no support for SFTP at all?
Correct. FileZilla Server supports FTP along with the secure FTPS extensions (FTP over TLS Explicit and FTP over TLS Implicit).

SFTP is a completely different implementation (based on SSH2) and not supported.

Oh I see...so you piggy back off another and not create your own original drive.

Ok, so assuming I connect to a SFTP server that *did* support the check file extension and had it enabled, your filezilla client would work no problems with the verification and all that, right since it's all done server side and none done client side?

This extension requires both client and server support.
