This guide will explain what should be done to connect through SFTP. SFTP is the most secure file-transferring method these days and it is most suited for VPS hosting.

Let us follow the steps to connect using SFTP:

  1. The below command is for checking your SSH access. You can use it:
    ssh [email protected]_ipaddress
  2. If the error does not arise, leave the session.
  3. Then start the SFTP connection using the following command:
    sftp [email protected]_ipaddress
  4. If you use a custom SSH port, utilise the below commands to modify the SFTP port:
    sftp -oPort=customport [email protected]_ipaddress
  5. The way it should look is as follows:
    sftp -oPort=39166 [email protected]
  6. You will receive an SFTP prompt once you are connected.
