Hi Folks,
I have an urgent requirement to convert existing Java FTP to Secured FTP. Can someone direct me to the right useful resources ? What are the different ways to achive security in FTP using Java. I need to have the FTP client and server running on both Windows and UNIX machines.
Any sample code will be of great help..

Hi Vicky
SFTP is possible to write in java but its not as simple as FTP. There are some commercial packages available I guess for the SFTP in java. Do google and find what people have done.
I tried to look into if I can write SFTP after I had Java FTP with me but it seemed that it would be easier to use what people have already done.

I agree. Here's the link:
