SFTP configuration in jde 9.2

For Media object transfer from Deployment server, we need to configure the SFTP
insteads of FTP. Since our webservers on Linux(SFTP enabled).

We need configure the SFTP serverices on Deployment server(Open SSH).

Installed CYGWIN on Deployment server, we able to check sftp manually (uploading file from webserver to deployment server ). What are the other steps for jde to work mediaobject uploads?

  1. Select all the six OpenSSH/SSL packages(First download and again click on Setupx86.exe install it from locally downloaded repository)

  1. Once the installation completed, click on the Cygwin Terminal create on Desktop. Execute the below commands.

export CYGWIN='ntsec tty'
chmod +rw /etc/group ----à Ignore if group doesn’t exist locally
