I have a small question regarding how to use SFTP over SSH. Is there any documentation regarding how this is used? I couldn't really find much in your documentation except how to set it up from the server side, but how can you use this on the clients side? Do you use an SSH terminal such as Putty?

When I connect via Putty, the client asks for a username and password but then the connection drops with a network error: Software caused connection abort. When I try and connect via computer explorer (sftp://username:password@domain) the connection switches to an ftp port and not SFTP.

Can you please explain this a little further?

It is very easy to use SFTP, on server side, you just need to open an SFTP listener(port 22 by default).
On client side, you had better use FTPRush or Filezilla or Putty, they all support SFTP.

Good luck!
