sftp to port 990

Hi,

I am trying to sftp files from my HP-UX 11i v3 server to a Windows server.

I have no control over the Windows server as it is managed by someone else and the sftp port has been set as 990.

I have tried running :

sftp -oport=990 @

but it is not connecting.

The Windows server is running as I am able to login if I use "winscp" software (using port 990 also) on my PC.

Is there anything else I need to set at HP-UX in order to sftp to port 990?

Thanks

An actual error message might be interesting.

What does this do?:

telnet 990

> [...] I use "winscp" software (using port
> 990 also) on my PC.

Which avoids using the network, right?

> Is there anything else [...]

Hard to say. Is there a firewall of some
kind between these systems?

Re: sftp to port 990

Hi Steven,

Thanks for your reply.

I think I was wrong.

After the post, I did more searching and found that it is actually "ftps" and not "sftp". That's why it is not connecting - it just hangs.

I've also tried "telnet 990" and it is also hanging.

I don't think the "sftp" command works if it is "ftps".

So how should I proceed with the file transfer?

Any advice is much appreciated.

Thanks

You need an FTPS client for HP-UX.

Search for "FTPS client HP-UX" here on in google. Several hits.

Or ask the windows admin to start up an SSH environment so you can use sftp.
