SSH Tectia

Using sftpg3

sftpg3(sftpg3.exe on Windows) is an FTP-like client that can be used for secure file transfers over the network. sftpg3 uses 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 any FTP daemon or FTP client for its connections. sftpg3 can be used on SSH Tectia ConnectSecure to connect to any host that is running a Secure Shell version 2 server with the sftp-server (or sft-server-g3) subsystem enabled.

The command-line version of sftpg3 supports the streaming and checkpoint/restart functions when SSH Tectia Server is used as the Secure Shell server.

The basic syntax of sftpg3 is:

sftpg3 user@host

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