can't connect with secure ftp client


Hi everyone,
The place I work just started using a secure ftp system in place of the regular old ftp setup they had. I'm kind of clueless with networking protocols and all of the acronyms (not that I don't want to learn, but the learning curve is steep!)

I am using yafc to try to get a secure ftp connection from my Slackware box to the remote secure ftp system.

Here's what I know,

If I try yafc user@remote.host I get a message back saying "insecure connection AUTH command expected" (or something similar). That means it is expecting a secure connection.

If I try yafc ssh://user@remote.host the connection times out.

I know that ssh is set up correctly for local connections and for my local network, since I can get a connection using yafc ssh://user@localhost or yafc ssh://user@other.local.host


Can anyone help me figure out what's going wrong here? Or do I have to get some secret information that only the network admins have access to? All of my googling and reading man pages makes it seem like it should be a simple process, but I can't figure it out....

Hi there,

I don't know yafc but I read SF page at <http://yafc.sourceforge.net/> and it support sftp.
So what you need to do is :
Use SSH2 protocol and lanch a command like <sftp user@remote.host> and I think this will work fine.

Cheers

Thanks for the response. That's what I've been trying. When I do that in verbose mode I see that the server responds with "ssh_exchange_identification: 220 service ready for new user"
and never gets beyond that point. After waiting a while it times out, and the connection gets closed.

Fixed.
I just needed an ftp client that supports TLS. I tried gui clients -- at first kasablanca worked, but then it quit for some reason. Then I tried kftpgrabber and it worked from the start. ANyone kow of any CLI clients that support TLS?
