SFTP C# Mono

Aanvik asked
Last Modified: 2016-02-19
I would like to develop a simple C# code (for a Linux server) using MONO ... to open a sftp connection... put the file and close the connection....
Here's what I am currently doing on Linux manually

sftp fts@trl001
connect to fts@trl001
sftp> Put <some file name>
sftp> bye

I just do these 3 command manually and I was  thinking of writing a C# program on Linux to do this for me...

Any help?

Do you want to do it using sftp command, or you would like to do it in a different way?


In case of using sftp command, you can create a new process and pass the arguments to that process.

Can you pls provide some more details here pls... So in case I use this I won;t have to use these products... correct ?
In case of using sftp command, you won't need those things.

Have a look at System.Diagnostic.Process class.
Also check the sftp command's manual to check how you can pass those parameters to sftp command all in one argument.


Ok.. Thank you.

I know System.Diagnostic.Process class
