SFTP (acronym for SSH File Transfer Protocol) is used for encrypted transfer of data using an encrypted SSH (german only) connection. Since version 2 of Secure Shell (german only), SFTP is part of SSH and offers its service via port 22, which is also used to connect to the SSH server (Dropbear (german only)).
By default, it is not possible to use SFTP to connect to a Dreambox. The necessary
openssh-sftp-server package is also not available at most of the software feeds. So by default only SCP can be used as connection protocol.
|If you use Gemini Project 3, the SFTP server package is awailable on the software feed for installation.|
