SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) is a network protocol for secure file transfer between a client and a server. It is based on the Secure Shell Protocol (SSH), which provides secure user authentication and encrypted data transfer to protect your data from unauthorized access. SFTP is a secure alternative to other file transfer protocols such as FTP and is used in many different industries, including retail, automotive, healthcare, and finance. It is also used in conjunction with EDI.
The Module SFTP Client extends the functionality of !MC5 with the ability to transfer data encrypted via SFTP. It enables outgoing client connections to any SFTP servers provided by your business partners to transfer data to them or download data from them. The Module SFTP Server is required for incoming connections. Sending or fetching data can be done manually or automatically. A time-controlled dial-up to the opposite side can also be easily set up.
The Module SFTP Client integrates seamlessly with !MC5 and all supported add-ons and modules, including the Module EDI, to provide comprehensive EDI processing. It already includes an SFTP Channel that can be used with both the Module SFTP Client and the Module SFTP Server.
