Transferring files securely by using SFTP

You can transfer files securely by using the Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP), which enables file transfer by using the Secure Shell (SSH) protocol.

Use the properties on the FTP tab of the FileInput and FileOutput nodes to configure the secure transfer of files.

You can also use the FtpServer configurable service to configure other SFTP properties, including the cipher to be used for SFTP communication, compression level, and strict known host checking.
