"FTP over SSH is the practice of tunneling a normal FTP session over a Secure Shell connection" [1].


  • SFTP = SSH file transfer protocol ≠ FTP-over-SSH. Het heeft zelfs niets met FTP te maken [2]. Gebruikt meestal poort 22
  • FTP over SSH = gewoon FTP, maar over een SSH-tunnel
  • FTPS = FTP over SSL.


"You probably won't find libraries for "FTP over SSH" because typically the tunnel is set up by running an SSH command, and once it is set up, clients and servers don't need to know about the tunnel; they just open ports and transfer data they way they would without a tunnel." [3]
