From your local machine you can create am SSH tunnel through the intermediate host to the final host: ssh user@intermediate -L 2000:final:22 -N This will open port 2000 on your localhost that will connect directly to the final server on port 22, by tunneling through the intermediate host. Now in another prompt connect with sftp on port 2000 to be tunneled ...

FTPS is FTP using the SSL protocol for encryption. This is different from the SCP/SFTP family of protocols which use SSH as their transport tunnel. You will usually use the same client programs for scp and sftp (WinSCP for instance; SFTP is an upgraded version of SCP), whereas you usually use a web browser or web Download manager (like filezilla) for FTPS. ...

FileZilla uses the PuTTY suite of tools for its SSH implementation. PuTTY supports using public keys, so by default so does FileZilla. Its as simple as downloading and running Pageant and importing your key or generating a new one using PuTTYgen. You can also manually specify a key file using the Edit->Settings menu item under the connection settings. ...

Try using Cyberduck, a free, open-source app. Here are the supported protocols: FTP (File Transfer Protocol), FTP/TLS (FTP secured over SSL/TLS), SFTP (SSH Secure File Transfer), WebDAV (Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning), Amazon S3 and Rackspace Cloud Files.

From the help text: "... [-F ssh_config] ..." According to the above, -F expects one argument: path to an OpenSSH configuration file, ~/.ssh/config or similar. But you are giving it a gzipped SQL dump instead. Since plain ssh myalias is already working, you don't even need the -F option here. Just sftp myalias would connect to the server. However, the ...

First of all I'd try and see whether it's possible to make the connection more stable. File transfer apart, I don't think it's healthy to work with a connection that drops every 90 seconds. A simple USB WiFi dongle could work miracles there (first, investigate which device is actually causing the disconnection: host A, host B, or the access point? ...

Yes, there's an application that works exactly like your 'magic-qos-tool', called "trickle". EXAMPLES trickle -u 10 -d 20 ncftp Launch ncftp(1) limiting its upload capacity to 10 KB/s, and download ca- pacity at 20 KB/s.

In essence, without the GUI or other conveniences: ssh -o ProxyCommand='ssh myfirsthop nc -w 10 %h %p' mydestination You can make this default by editing the config file, by default ~/.ssh/config Host mydestination, mydest2, mydest3 ProxyCommand ssh myfirsthop nc -w 10 %h %p This then allows you to do ssh mydestination scp mydest2:file.txt ./ scp ...

Unfortunately there don’t seem to be any existing shell-extensions for Explorer to control the colors of files and folders. If you are open to using alternate shells, then there are a several options: XYplorer supports coloring files (figure 1), but currently only by name. However, they take feature-requests, so you could ask them to implement a ...

What about using something like 7zip or winrar to create split archives of, say 50MB each. That way you can transfer files until connection drops but you don't need to start from scratch each time. # -mx0 indicates no compression to be used (quickest method) 7z a -mx0 -v50m video.7z myVideo.mp4 Once all files transferred (using scp or equivalent) just ...

Don't use the sftp program directly if you can find something better. For Linux, many file managers (at least Nautilus and Dolphin, the GNOME and KDE ones) support sftp natively, and there's always sshfs. For windows, there's WinSCP, and probably others. The point of all of these is to let you access files over sftp as if they were on a regular filesytem, so ...

Although not strictly equivalent to sftp, rsync is a very powerful alternative for scp and sftp, especially when updating the copies from machine A to machine B, as it doesn't copy the files that haven't been altered; it's also able to remove files from machine B that have been deleted from machine A (only when it's told to of course). In your case, the ...

You can use SFTP's ProxyCommand option to transparently tunnel an SFTP connection over an SSH connection (a bit similar to WhiteFang34's answer, but over the SSH connection's stdin&stdout, rather than a forwarded local TCP port): sftp -o "ProxyCommand=ssh -e none user@intermediatehost exec /usr/bin/nc %h %p 2>/dev/null" user@finalhost (That's ...

SCP is the file transfer tool from SSH. It requires SSH on both client and server. It is not interactive. SFTP is another file transfer tool that can be used with SSH (so it again may require SSH on both client and server) or with any other compatible secure connection tool, since it is intended to be independent of SSH. It is interactive like the old plain ...

Based on a similar question at Serverfault.com (this thread came up first searching for a tool however), one can also try the free version of SFTP Net Drive. A commenter on the answer describes it as similar to the paid tool ExpanDrive.

You need make sure /home/ftp is owned by root and that group and others don't have write permissions, e.g. chmod 0755. You need to add sub-directories for ftp to add files in. You also need the internal-sftp subsystem, otherwise you need to provide a proper chroot environment in /home/ftp: Subsystem sftp internal-sftp To disallow all non-password ...

Wi-Fi overhead is typically 50%. You based your calculation on a data rate you said you weren't getting. You didn't convert between mega and Mebi. The tool you were using was likely only reporting the data rate at which your client was transmitting, which is not necessarily the data rate your AP was getting when transmitting to your client. So if you were ...

Neither FTP/VPN or SFTP is going to be faster than the other on large files. SFTP/VPN is going to encrypt twice, so will cost more resources - but is likely bandwidth constrained anyhow, so the extra CPU cost probably won't slow down the overall process. Both SFTP and VPN have ways that they are easier: with SFTP, you have one tool to depend on, and direct ...

You may look for download sites that offer rsync since it uses ssh as its transport (which sftp also does). Type rsync cdimage.ubuntu.com::cdimage/ in a shell and check if you can read a directory listing. Read the rsync man page for further info. This command downloads Raring Ubuntu with Gnome for 64-Bit Intel machines: rsync -P ...

I personally did not find any option to re-enable FTP Upload for session, but if you go to Project Properties and set in the Run Configuration "tab" the option Upload Files to "On Run" or "Manually", hit Ok, and then modify it again to "On Save", then the FTP Upload on save is enabled again. Hope this was helpful!

You can't use symlinks, that is true. Symbolic links are relative to root directory (/), and in chroot that is chroot's root, not your filesystem root. Here's proftpd documentation page explaining the same thing.

You need to download the beta of Cyberduck to make it work correctly under Snow Leopard. When reading this, it's probably not such a bad idea to go to the website, and grab the latest version.

Try mget instead of get. Clarification: mget will work if you are inside the directory you want to copy; if you do something like this: sftp> cd dir_to_get sftp> mget * it will get all the files in that directory. However, it will not recursively get the contents of any subdirectories.

You can use SSHFS with MacFUSE to connect to SFTP servers (SSHFS) natively, and they'll show up in the Finder as if it was an SMB or AFP mounted drive. This is (in my opinion) the easiest way to do it, and it's nice that it's not a separate program like CyberDuck, but integrated right into the Finder.

I prefer SFTP over FTPS mainly because it takes extra effort to set up an FTP server on a server. Most probably the server is going to already have SSH installed to administer it remotely, so why not just take advantage of what is already installed? Using SFTP requires no extra effort to get it running. Most FTP clients have built in support for SFTP, so ...

You can also do: ps -ef | grep '[s]shd' | grep -v ^root which should show any sshd sessions (which are used for sftp). I notice on my machine my sshd process command line contains '$USER@notty' which makes sense since I'm not logged in with a terminal session. You could tighten up the grep above with: ps -ef | grep '[s]shd:.*@notty' | grep -v ^root ...

I use WinSCP instead of FileZilla to transfer files to/from my EC2 instance. Logging in with a PPK file is very simple. In addition, WinSCP provides a very nice GUI (I use the version that looks/acts like the regular Windows Explorer interface). Note the PPK file is associated with the username and password from [Set2]. [Set1] simply connects you to a ...
