SFTP requires that a SSH key be installed on the server to operate correctly. It is required to have an SSH key installed for the application to start up. Below are steps you can take to generate the needed key on a windows system.
- Open a terminal window.
- Enter this command line:
ssh-keygen -t rsa
- Select the default values for all options.
This command generates two SSH key files,
id_dsa.pub, in the users home directory.
- Send the public key file
id_dsa.pubto your partner representative.
