The Secure File Transfer Protocol provides secure file transfer functionality over any reliable data stream, SSH in this case. It is the standard file transfer protocol for use with the SSH2 protocol. wodSFTPdll library implements client side of this protocol which is reliable and easy to use.
SFTP protocol is designed to provide primarily file transfer, but also more general file system access on the remote server - in secure manner. SFTP protocol assumes it is running on secure channel (secure channel is implemented in wodSFTPdll), thus no plaintext passwords or file information is exposed to the network.
This library implements protocol that is also used in well known SCP (Secure Copy) command on UNIX systems. Internally, SCP client opens SFTP connection with the server for file transfer (much better than calling RCP over SSH connection).
wodSFTPdll supports the most important PutFile (for file uploading) and GetFile (for file downloading) methods, but also:
wodSFTPdll is tested and works great with all OpenSSH versions, as well as SSH (from SSH Communications Security Corp.) which are the most commonly used today. It has been also tested on numerous others too. Different server implementations handle some sftp features differently (for example, some add / to the end of each directory name) but wodSFTPdll has no problems with those. If there is a problem - we will fix it or add certain feature on your request.
wodKeys component is included in our setup package free of charge. It can be used for private key management - to Generate new keys, Load/Save the, obtain public keys etc.. Helpfile can be found here.
DEMO version of this library does not allow you to change your password - it will be set to 'weonlydo' and cannot be changed. To test this library, you will have to change the password on the server. Sorry - but this is the step we had to take..
Don't be fooled by the cost, it's value and quality far exceeds the price being charged!
The SFTP ocx is one of the finest pieces of programming I have seen. It worked out of the box...
...what I really like is that wodSSH and wodSFTP components work excellently and are constantly being improved...
May I say how nice it is to work with components so complete and self-explanatory that using them in my application is as instinctive as though I wrote them myself?
WeOnlyDo!COM will be the first stop I make should I require any further off-the-shelf components.
We are having great success with your component ... email server that has over 750 000 mailboxes back ended by a SQL server...
...I'm extremely impressed with the product, it represents excellent value for money...
You made it so simple for us to integrate SFTP - a technology we had little experience with...
...with the SFTP interface you produced, everything was so simple to understand, we were able to start coding almost immediately!
Thank you for the great customer service ... I am really impressed with the wodSSH ActiveX control.
