Filezilla SFTP server setup
Posted on 2014-02-14
I need to set up an SFTP server. I am using Filezilla. I've got it to where FTP works. Now I want to set up SFTP. When I get to this step:
"Now run Pageant. In your system tray, you'll see the Pageant icon appear. Right-click the icon and select "Add Key" and select your private key (PPK) file. Follow the prompt to enter your pass phrase and you're done."
Pageant doesn't prompt for a pass phrase.
"Now simply launch FileZilla and connect to your server using SFTP using SSH2 with a username and an empty password. Don't forget to close pageant when you're done."
I confess I don't understand these steps. I tried the Alternate Method to Add key file, but I don't see an SFTP option.
Can anyone shed some light on this? If you have to back me up and start from square one, that is fine.
