Differences between SFTP and “FTP over SSH” – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/10/13

As I will likely have to secure some external FTP sessions soon and the endpoints the current FTP connects to are vague in what they support:

Here is the difference:

  • SFTP (SSH file transfer protocol) is a protocol that provides file transfer and manipulation capabilities. It can work over any reliable data stream, but is typically used with SSH
  • “FTP over SSH” uses the regular old FTP protocol, but an SSH tunnel is placed between client and server.
