    THIS ISSUE IS NOW SOLVED - THANK YOU
    Hi All

    I'm trying to make a connection to an SFTP site.  I can do this via either a web browser or FileZilla but I had to accept the server's host key the first time I connected.

    How do I do this in Automic?

    Currently when I try the Connection Object I' get a java message telling me the host doesn't exist.

    Hi.

    iirc (but I may be mistaken), the RA agent displays the host key on first connection. I'm not sure anymore if it allows for it to be accepted or rejected or just plainly accepts it.

    Thus, I believe your reported error message about the host not existing has other reasons and is not directly related to the host key.

    Hth,

    Hi Thank you for that.  It's amazing how you ignore the obvious when your head gets an idea.

    Turns out that whilst FileZilla needs SFTP:// as a prefix to the address Automic doesn’t (maybe it adds this itself I don’t know) but I can now connect and see both folders & files with in the folders.
