Secure FTP (SSH) with the FTP Adapter



Has anyone ever used the FTP adapter in conjunction with tools like OpenSSH (on CYGWIN) or PUTTY to facilitate secure FTP connections?

I know that the FTP adapter allows us to use FTPS (FTP over SSL), but the client wants to use SSH. As far as I can make out from the various documentation that I have read, openssh or putty need to be triggered as an explicit command.

So, right now, the only way I can think of implementing this scenario is to use the file/ftp adapter to write to a local folder, and then use the 'Run Operating System Command' functionality to trigger the openssh/putty executable, which will then send the file securely to the destination.

But this is not an elegant solution. Can anyone suggest any other way?

Thanks and Regards
