SFTP stands for SSH File Transfer Protocol
It is a protocol for securely transfer file over a network between a client that can use that protocol and a server that implements the protocol.
The particularity of SFTP compared to FTP and FTPS is how it uses SSH as a transport mechanism to securely transfer file.ssft
To use SFTP, you need both a server which implement the SFTP protocol like openssh and a client to communicate with that server.
To transfer files using SFTP, you need to connect to a server that can speak SFTP by using an SFTP Client (eg: Filezilla FTP, WinSCP, Filestash, Cyberduck, ...). Typically you would drag and drop files on your SFTP client to the desired location.
You can use an SFTP web client like Filestash which comes with a web interface to access and transfer your files.
The SFTP protocol typically uses port 22.
SSH is to SFTP what a cinder block is to a house. SFTP leverages the SSH protocol as a transport mechanism to securely transfer your files over a network.
Both FTP and SFTP share the same use case to transfer file over a network. What stands them apart is the nitty gritty details in the protocol. The biggest difference is SFTP leverages SSH for encryption whereas FTPS use SSL and bare FTP has no encryption at all.
Yes. It works like this: `curl -k "sftp://test.rebex.net/readme.txt" --user "demo:password"`
OpenSSH is the most popular SFTP implementation but some other exists like proFTPd. Also you can find a few unix shell that provide SFTP access like https://sdf.org/
