You need to sync the host keys and user keys(which ever user) for using sftp without password.
You need not sync the keys if you dont want a passwordless sftp.

Code:
sftp user@host
eg:-

sftp root@192.168.1.1

It will prompt for password, provide the password and use the normal ftp commands to transfer the files like put etc

On the remote server, check if ssh daemon is running. ps -eaf | grep ssh
Hope your host is reachable.

Actually I want to transfer files on a specific sftp server. The command that I'm trying to move files is as follows:-
<CODE>
scp user@server:/var/path/XX_P.txt sftp -oPort=22 user@server:/dir
</CODE>
Is this the right way to do it? else how can this be achieved??

Pls help.

Can someone let me know if there is any other way of passing passwords to scp other than sharing public and private key concept???
