What are FTPS and SFTP?

FTPS is a File Transfer Protocol with SSL for security.

As the name suggests, FTPS and SFTP are used to transfer files between computers on a network or the Cloud. You can use FTPS and SFTP to exchange files between computer accounts, transfer files between an account and a desktop computer, or access online software storage.

In order to use FTPS or SFTP, you will need to have a FilesAnywhere account. You will also need to have the means with which to use these connections. These include programs such as an FTPS/SFTP Client like FileZilla, or a backup software like our very own CoolBackup. You can also use your very own scripts to connect as well.

Scripting can be used to automate connections and commands to upload or download data to and from FilesAnywhere. To automate operation, you need to find out the commands necessary to accomplish what you wish to do.

For simple operations you need to at least.

  • 1. Open session using open command.
    2. Perform operation. For uploads use put command. For downloads use get command. For synchronization use synchronize command.
    3. Exit scripting using exit command.

For example, a typical script to upload a file is:

  • # Connect to SFTP server using a password
    open sftp://user:password@example.com/ -hostkey="ssh-rsa 2048 xxxxxxxxxxx...="
    # Upload file
    put d:\examplefile.txt /home/user/
    # Exit WinSCP
