Transfer files from/to remote servers using sftp through the bastion


This plugin generates a valid helper script for you to use the bastion over scp, read below to learn how to use it.

To be able to use sftp over the bastion, you need to have a helper script that is specific to your account on the bastion. This plugin's job is to generate it for you. You can simply run it, and follow the guidelines.

Once this is done, you'll be able to sftp through the bastion by adding -S SFTP_SCRIPT to your regular sftp command, where SFTP_SCRIPT is the location of the script you've just generated.

For example:

sftp -S ~/sftp_bastion login@server


If you're getting the 'subsystem request failed on channel 0' error, it usually means that sftp is not enabled on the remote server, as this is not always enabled by default, depending on the distro you're using.

Please note that you need to be granted for uploading or downloading files with SFTP to/from the remote host, in addition to having the right to SSH to it. For a group, the right should be added with --sftp of the groupAddServer command. For a personal access, the right should be added with --sftp of the selfAddPersonalAccess command. selfListEgressKeys
