Aware of any SFTP client library / template?


#1

I am in the planning process of implementing SFTP functionality within our product. Currently it only support FTP (using NETTALK), but I would like it to have SFTP as well, due to increasing customer demand.

All my search leads me to Klarisoft (using SocketTools). What I like about this is, it uses native windows library and NOT ActiveX controls.

If anybody out there know of any other options, please let me know.

Thank you

Mathew

Hi Mathew,

I know you’ve said NOT ActiveX control but I think its still worth mentioning the Chilkat ActiveX control.
We support it in Clarion (c6 - c10, ABC + Legacy) and it works with RegFreeCOM so there are no worries about access rights on any PCs. We’ve had it on a test for 5 days solid querying and updating Xero Accounting and it didn’t miss a heartbeat - Very stable.

The Chilkat ActiveX control provides LOTS of communication functionality (98 separate libraries) including (but not limited to):-

AuthAzure
AuthGoogle
Crypt2
Email (inc Imap)
HTTP
Java Web Tokens
Json
OAuth 1 and 2
Pfx keys
Rest
FTP and SFTP
SCP and SSH
Rest
StringBuilder
Socket
XML
Zip

More info on:- https://www.chilkatsoft.com/refdoc/activex.asp

We’ve create a wrapper template for this control and is being updated constantly. As well as covering the bases classes, we’re also adding ‘Task’ classes to make selected tasks even easier. Eg:-

Dropbox
Google
Paypal
QuickBooks Online
SMS
Xero Accounting

Any question - just ask :slight_smile:
