In this section we’ll look into how we can login to the AS2 Gateway SFTP server from FileZilla SFTP Client. If you don’t have the client installed already please download the client and install it before proceeding further.

  1. First download the private key file from the SFTP view in AS2Gateway.

  2. Then open up FileZilla client

  6. Then fill the username with the username which you used when setting up SFTP in AS2Gateway.

  7. Now you can browse for the key file we downloaded in the first step and assign it. Note that in this step a dialog box will pop up as shown below. In this dialog box, FileZilla is asking if it is fine to convert the private key to the format it expects. Click Yes to proceed.
