sftp auto login

Hi,

I looked into lot of posts on this question but i could not figure out the solution. we are using the following ftp shell program to send the file to target server.

#!/usr/bin/ksh
ftp -n -i<<EOF 2>&1
open <target server ip>
user <username> <pwd>
lcd /sc/doc/prd/FCSTP
put file1.txt
quit
EOF


Problem is target server is not accepting ftp. So, I have tryed with sftp then it's fine.But not able to auto login to the server.Please find the below sftp program.

#!/usr/bin/ksh
HOST='<target ip address>'
user='<username>'
pass='<pwd>'
echo "Starting to sftp..."
sftp $HOST<<EOF 2>&1
user $user
$pass
lcd /sc/doc/tst/FCSTP
put file1.txt
bye
EOF
echo "done"


Can any one please help me on this.

Thanks,
Srini

First you have to setup SFTP. Your public key should be in the remote Server
Once you are set, then you dont need password to login for SFTP.

Use "sftp -v" option for detail steps of the sftp. You'll have an idea where it is failing.

You have to have set up and exchange keys.

Read this article, it is for someone who has never done this before.
