Talking Using sshftp


I want to use sftp to exchange files within a network. I use this using gnome Placs > Connect to server > SSH connection however I dont know if this is the command line.

The command line is very useful and using some app like midnight commander or something else.

First you may need to generate your key then;
This is just an example
Code:
$ ssh-keygen -t dsa -C "USERNAME@shell.sf.net"
Generating public/private dsa key pair.
Enter file in which to save the key (/home/username/.ssh/id_dsa):
Created directory '/home/username/.ssh'.
Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase):
Enter same passphrase again:
Your identification has been saved in /home/username/.ssh/id_dsa.
Your public key has been saved in /home/username/.ssh/id_dsa.pub.
The key fingerprint is:
f3:31:a8:c6:82:18:c8:0f:dd:6b:fb:27:98:83:3d:3b USERNAME@shell.sf.net
then you log in and I use ls or pwd to see where I'm at then
Code:
Transferring a file to a SourceForge.net host:
$ sftp USERNAME@HOSTNAME
put PATH_TO_FILE_TO_SEND
exit

Transferring a file from a SourceForge.net host
$ sftp USERNAME@HOSTNAME
get PATH_TO_FILE_TO_RECEIVE
exit
This may help;

So you also need to move the .pub key to the remote machine, into the remote login user's home directory as ~/.ssh/authorized_keys2
eg scp ~/.ssh/id_dsa.pub server:/.ssh/authorized_keys2

Then it is a passwordless connection..
