Full Version: Sftp Gui For Sharp Rom?
OESF Portables Forum > Everything Else > Archived Forums > Zaurus General Forums > General Support and Discussion > Software
Does anyone know if there's a graphical SFTP client for the Sharp ROM?

I've been using tkcFTP for regular FTP and it works reasonably well for me. I'm trying to close all my FTP and TELNET ports on all my systems though (better late than never, right?) and a Z GUI SFTP is the one hole in my coverage right now...


I've not seen an SFTP client for the Zaurus, but would certainly welcome one.
Is it possible that J-FTP could be compiled to run on the Zaurus?

Well, it's java, so, theoretically at least, it doesn't need compiling. It's possible that it could be made to work. I'm not up-to-date on the state of Z java support though so I can't say off-hand. It might need re-compiling to work around unsupported java features.

Another option, although I haven't tried it yet, is to use standard FTP with SSH Port Forwarding. This would still require running an FTP server on the host machine, but the FTP port would not need to be accessible directly from the network (only SSH). I'll have to give that a try. Theoretically, it should even work with something like tkcFTP. Ultimately, though, I'd like to eliminate my FTP servers altogether.

Another angle to this that I just thought of is Zaurus feeds. I have one set-up on my home system. They require FTP, I believe. Since the Z SW installer lets you specify the connection parameters, I suspect the SSH Port Forwarding trick could work with that also.
