What Port Does SFTP Use?

Posted by Van Glass on Mon, Jan 12, 2015 @ 07:01 PM

SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol), not to be confused with FTPS (Secure FTP), runs on top of the SSH (Secure Shell) protocol and by default uses port 22 for communications.  An SFTP server may however be configured to listen on a different port other than the default port.  Listening on a port other than the default port is a common tactic used to reduce the number of attacks, in particular scripted brute-force password attacks.

How To Set Up A HTTPS File Transfer

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Tue, Dec 30, 2014 @ 02:21 AM


Overview

In this post, you'll learn how to set up a HTTPS file transfer. We'll begin with a "quickstart", where you'll use the default settings in order to get a HTTPS file transfer service up and running with just a few clicks. After that, we'll tackle some of the more advanced settings so you can choose your desired set of SSL/TLS cipher suites and server key. Your choice of cipher suites and keys will have an effect on the security of your HTTPS service and its compatibility with your users' web browsers.

Note: The HTTPS or HTTP Secure protocol is defined in RFC 2818, so if you want a really technical discussion on HTTPS alone, feel free to read that.

Note: JSCAPE's HTTPS is not affected by the Heartbleed vulnerability
