What am I doing wrong ? FTPS SSH2 setup

#1 Post by chapeau_melon » 2016-03-02 15:16

Hello all,

What am I doing wrong ?
I'm trying to grasp the setup of SFTP SSH2...
The setup is purely locally on my laptop, server & client.

- I've created a cert on the server with password, port 990
- I've compiled the cert into puttyformat
- client is setup with the ppk files both in 'setup' as in 'site manager'
- Pageant is running on laptop

Thanks for reading

FileZilla Server only speaks FTP and FTPS (FTP over TLS)

You seem to confuse FTPS with SFTP. The latter stands for SSH file transfer protocol and has absolutely nothing in common with FTP(S) apart from a similar name and purpose.

Thank you, meanwhile while reading the forum I guessed so too...

Is there an opensource or free alternative for a FTP server capable of SFTP ?

Thanks

Usually you should use OpenSSH.

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