SFTP Server Package by IOanyT Innovations - AmazonLinux

Updated: Nov 23, 2022


An SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) server is an endpoint that is associated with a receiver or a destination during a message exchange. The server can be associated with more than one destination or receiver, but a destination or receiver can be associated with only one server.

An SFTP server uses the SFTP transport protocol, which is an extension of the Secure Shell (SSH) cryptographic protocol. To use an SFTP server in a message exchange profile, you must first configure the server. Then, you include the server in the configuration of an exchange profile that can use an SFTP server.
