I need to develop an application which searches some contents say a particular in the file placed at a location in unix server and displays it on my local machine(in windows).
I need to know how we can connect to the unix server.
Right now I use filezila to connect to the server and download the file.
Inputs for file zila is host name is like
. , username, pwd and port: 22
Please guide me how to do the same through
code. I work on diff app. dont know java much.
It will be great if I can get any sample code which can guide me further.
