wwSFTP::cPrivateKeyFile

An optional private key file to pass instead of or in addition to a password. Path should be fully qualified.

Private Key should be in OpenSSH format

The private key file should be in OpenSSH format that starts with a
-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
prefix. If your file is a PutTyGen key file, you can use PutTyGen to convert it to OpenSSH format.

Most SFTP servers that use Private Key Files expect both a password and keyfile for two-factor authentication, but some servers only require one or the other. Check with your server documentation what's required.

FUNCTION UploadFileWithPrivateKey()

loFtp = CREATEOBJECT("wwSftp")

loFtp.cFtpServer ="127.0.0.1"
loFtp.nFtpPort = 23
loFtp.cUsername = "tester"
loFtp.cPassword = "password"

*** Private Key File and optional Private Key Password
loFtp.cPrivateKeyFile = "c:\utl\server-private-key-rsa_OPENSSL.ppk"
loFtp.cPrivateKeyFilePassword = "my-super-secure-password"


DELETE FILE "SENDFILETEST.ZZZ"

IF NOT FILE("SENDFILETEST.ZZZ")
  lcBlob = ""
  FOR i = 1 TO 255 
    lcBlob = lcBlob + CHR(i)
  ENDFOR 
  lcBigBlob = REPLICATE(lcBlob,256)
  FOR i = 1 TO 101
    STRTOFILE(lcBigBlob,"SENDFILETEST.ZZZ",1)
  ENDFOR
ENDIF

lcSourceFile =  FULLPATH(".\SENDFILETEST.ZZZ")   && "C:\installs\Distribution CD\Demos\wconnect.exe"

loFtp.FtpClose()
