Types

Options =
    [{cwd, string()} |
     {file_handler, CallbackModule :: string()} |
     {max_files, integer()} |
     {root, string()} |
     {sftpd_vsn, integer()}]
Spec = {Name, {CbMod, Options}}
Name = string()
CbMod = atom()

Is to be used together with ssh:daemon/[1,2,3]

The Name is "sftp" and CbMod is the name of the Erlang module implementing the subsystem using the ssh_server_channel (replaces ssh_daemon_channel) behaviour.

Options:

cwd

Sets the initial current working directory for the server.

file_handler

Determines which module to call for accessing the file server. The default value is ssh_sftpd_file, which uses the file and filelib APIs to access the standard OTP file server. This option can be used to plug in other file servers.

max_files

The default value is 0, which means that there is no upper limit. If supplied, the number of filenames returned to the SFTP client per READDIR request is limited to at most the given value.

root

Sets the SFTP root directory. Then the user cannot see any files above this root. If, for example, the root directory is set to /tmp, then the user sees this directory as /. If the user then writes cd /etc, the user moves to /tmp/etc.

sftpd_vsn

Sets the SFTP version to use. Defaults to 5. Version 6 is under development and limited.
