At IU, what SSH/SFTP clients are supported and where can I get them?
Secure FTP (SFTP) is a means of transferring files securely using SSH. It is functionally similar to FTP, but FTP clients cannot communicate with SFTP servers. If you need to transfer files with a host that requires an SFTP connection, UITS and the University Information Security Office (UISO) recommend the following:
- PuTTY is an open-source command-line SSH interface; for more, see the PuTTY home page. Download PuTTY from the publisher.
- WinSCP is an open-source GUI client for downloading and uploading files (FTP and SFTP); for more, see the WinSCP home page. Go to WinSCP.net, and download the latest installation package.
SSH Communications Security has discontinued support for non-commercial versions of SSH Secure Shell. As a result, SSH Secure Shell is no longer available for download from IUware or the SSH website.
