Knowledgebase: Using Shell (SSH)
What is scp / sftp?
Posted by Pacific Host on 04 December 2011 05:11 PM
Scp and sftp are both part of OpenSSH, the secure shell server we run. Do note that you cannot use sftp with an FTP only user - despite the name, sftp has fairly little in common with FTP. In other words, you must enable shell access for a user before you can use sftp (or scp) with that account.
