Re: Configure sftp

To install the SFTP functionality you will need to install a version of Secure Shell (SSH).  SFTP is bundled with SSH.

 

There are numerous posts about SSH and SFTP and installing it and using it in the Forums and on the web.

 

To turn off regular FTP, you need to edit the /etc/inetd.conf file and comment the line for the FTP daemon.  You will then need to tell inetd to reread its configuration file with 'inted -c'.
