Enable SFTP for winscp
« on: September 07, 2017, 05:58:34 am »
Hello I would like to use SFTP with proftpd I am using an ubunto 16 system. If I try to run from my Windows PC with winscp to my server then I get this error: Can not initialize the SFTP. Is an SFTP server running on the remote computer?
How do I enable SFTP so I can use winscp on my server? I am using key key for my server.
Thank you greetings dieex

What does your SFTPLog look like?  What does proftpd debug logging show?
