SSH Tectia

Using sftpg3

sftpg3 (sftpg3.exe on Windows) is an FTP-like client that can be used for file transfer over the network. sftpg3 launches ssh-broker-g3 to provide a secure transport using the Secure Shell version 2 protocol.

Even though it functions like ftp, sftpg3 does not use the FTP daemon or the FTP client for its connections. sftpg3 can be used to connect to any host that is running a Secure Shell version 2 server with the sftp-server subsystem enabled.

The basic syntax of sftpg3 is:

sftpg3 user@host

The actual usage of sftpg3 is similar to the traditional ftp program.

For more information on the command-line options and commands, see sftpg3(1).
