Reg:SFTP

I have a query in regards to SFTP....We have a SFTP ID/PWD, so say if the password changes

Would it fail my SFTP?


SFTP uses public/private keys for authentication right? So would it endanger my existing process????

If you're using the key, you're not using the password.

So to answer your first question: If you set it up to use keys, yes, it will use them. To your second question: No if you're using keys, yes if you're not.
