Secure FTP (SSH) with the FTP Adapter

122 Views

Hi,

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
