Class sFTP for VFP

Class sFTP for VFP

Class sFTP for VFP

hello everyone, I was looking for a class (possibly free) for VFP to manage views, uploading, downloading files for sFTP server.


Thank you

RE: Class sFTP for VFP

I don't know of any free ones, but this is very popular

I'm trying to cut down on the use of shrieks (exclamation marks), I'm told they are !good for you.

RE: Class sFTP for VFP

You can do it with the Microsoft Internet Transfer Control. This is one of the free ActiveX controls that come with VFP. But I've found it quite clunky. Give it a try, but you might well find something better.

RE: Class sFTP for VFP

Olaf, in your link speak of FTPS command not SFTP

am I wrong?

RE: Class sFTP for VFP

Hi Mike,

I am using the Microsoft Internet Transfer Control (Msinet.ocx), but I think it supports only FTP, no SFTP, no FTPS ...

Or am I wrong ???

Regards, Stefan

RE: Class sFTP for VFP

At least that's what you get for free, and if your sFTP server only is capable to support sFTP (perhaps even SSH over FTP?), then that's that. For Website management, you typically have several choices. The topic is secure file transfer, isn't it?

If you want something free acting via SSH File Transfer Protocol PuTTY or OpenSSH would be clients to use via command line switches, perhaps. I only used PuTTY manually and locally when the company I worked for then had some Linux Servers, not from VFP, but I know it has command line switches and would offer this more legacy way of automation. Create Batch Files and run them, pipe output into files (eg directory listing) and read them with VFP.

Or go with the Chilkat Activex components.

Bye, Olaf.
