Hi All,
I wanted to setup sftp server on rhel 5 server.
I googled but didn't find any proper resources or documents how to setup sftp.
I have already setup vsftp, but I am initerested in setting up sftp.
Please provide me with documentation or procedure to set up sftp.

Thanks in advance.

It's already done! (comes with standard RHEL)

Try to do a "sftp localhost" as a user that can ssh into the system...

If you for some reason hasn't got ssh installed just do a "yum install ssh"

sftp is provided by ssh

check firewall rules to see you can access your machine
# setup
will show a text based interface to set it up.

also check /etc/ssh/sshd_config to see and make sure
PermitRootLogin no
