SFTP stands for ssh file transfer protocol. When encountering the term sftp, one may in fact see references to two different things:

  1. the secure file transfer program client, which is a command line program that comes with OpenSSH and which is an interactive interface similar to the normal ftp clients one may find on their platform.
  2. the true ssh file transfer protocol. refers to this as being almost a remote file system protocol. Full support of the protocol is more than just running ftp over SSH-2 or with an SSL layer.
