Can you elaborate on this? I'm somewhat confused because when I do a packet
trace of what is happening during an sftp transfer I see SSL connection
establishment followed by data transfer.
Also, I don't know of a case where sftp is not available. I've used it on
most UNIX flavors and Windows. Where is it unavailable?
