With ScanShare Enterprise is it possible to scan to an SFTP folder using port 22?

I cannot see any definitive reference in the online manual and I have no resource to be able to perform a test scan myself.

Hi Brett,

 

yes that's possible. Our FTP connector supports S-FTP and you can specify any port to use inside the connector configuration.

Luigi

Hi,

What is the required SFTP private key format?

Maybe extension ppk?

In my cases appear "invalid private key file"

Thanks

Hi Bruno,

the supported format yes is PPK, however as you know PPK may be of several format as the file extension doesn't just give hint on how the content is encoded.

If you receive the Invalid Private Key error message means the format inside the PPK file isn't correct. Scanshare FTP connector expects a PPK with the standard RSA format (or OpenSSH), basically if you open the PPK with an editor you should see something like:

 

----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY----

XXXXX

----END RSA PRIVATE KEY----

 

If you have your private key in a different format you can simply convert it with any tool handling private keys such as OpenSSL.
