Default SFTP and FTP SSH ?

hi,
I'm wondering the différence between those two terms... because on the beta forum, I see that you're preparing the SSH compatibility. Does it means ffxp will support sftp ? (if yes, I register tomorrow)

ok, I've already read that, so it seems that sftp and ftp with SSH is not the same thing, right ?

Im not 100% sure how it works, but SFTP is something to do with FTP over SSH2 ..

In any case, FlashFXP wont be supporting it.

May I ask why ? Is that a choice because it's to hard to make ffxp compliant or somethnig else ?

FTP SSL/TLS is what FlashFXP currently supports.

As shark stated SFTP is FTP over SSH2.

The guy who wrote the SSL/TLS support for FlashFXP said SSH2 is completely different and he would be unable to support it.

If someone is able to provide me with the code necessary to support SFTP (using Borland Delphi) and it's possible to integrate it into FlasHFXP's non-modular design then maybe it will be supported.

as far as i know, SFTP is NOT equal to FTP over SSH2.

I have found following definition:

What's the difference between SFTP and FTP over SSH2?

In an SFTP transfer, the SSH2 server both encrypts the data and handles the file transfer itself. This is true for VShell™ as well as OpenSSH and other Unix or Linux servers. FTP over SSH2 uses the port forwarding capabilities of SSH2 to forward standard FTP over an encrypted tunnel, while the actual FTP file transfer is handled by a separate FTP server.

But I can't help you with that problem

Ah I didn't know that. I was under the impression they were the same thing.
