Hi all,

I have been checking the file integrity(calculating SHA1 cheksum) of tar files in linux server in my java code by using linux sha1sum.

Now i have to implement the same for tar files stored in remote SFTP servers (eg freeFTPd or linux native) without copying them to this server or streaming them to stdin.
I can do it after copying or by streaming to stdin of this server.but any method in which i can remotely do it?
any pointers?

Thanks

If you have sftp access, then you probably have ssh access. Connect with ssh, and run the "sum" command (or any other command of your choosing) on the file.
