We are working on SAP 4.7 system, and have a requirement to SFTP some files from our server to an external server.
We are sending files to many other servers using function module FTP_CONNECT. This FM works where Port 23 is active. But for the new server it has only SSH (22) and HTTPS (443) ports available, so the FTP_CONNECT FM fails. We have tried sending the files from Putty using statement SFTP <ID>@<IP> and it worked.
Does any one know how we can do SFTP from SAP reports? Please note that as per the SAP help I have already tried using FM FTP_CONNECT with HOST_NAME as '<IP> space 22'. But it didnt work.
Waiting for your valuable updates.
