Do I need an ftpd to have sftp


Does OpenSSH includes an FTP server. After using gnome I have seen that you can mount remote disks by using the sFTP. The interesting part isthat I dont remember ever setting an ftp server. Which means that openssh-server acts as the ftp server.

I am not sure and I want to corroborate this. Thanks for the info.

Hello Jzarecta,

You can use the sftp that comes with Openssh instead of ftp. But you must setup the ftp server for using sftp.

Thanks,,,

ftp and sftp are completely different things. You don't need an ftp server to connect to a box via sftp. Actually, you can't connect to an ftp server with an sftp client because they speak two different protocols. sftp clients immitate the behaviour of ftp clients but that's about it.

yes thats what I wanted to hear, so in the SFTP sense openssh will act as the sftp server correct.

I used scp in the past but I guess sftp is a much better way to interact.
