  4. The Permissions fields will become active. Select the ‘Allow Upload and Download‘ option.
  5. Depending on the selected protocol the following fields get enabled.

    • SFTP Password

Important: ☛
For Windows
SFTP client applications are available to access the SFTP Server.

For macOS
macOS includes a built-in SFTP client in the Terminal application, which can be accessed using the sftp command.

For Linux
Most Linux distributions include a built-in SFTP client, which can be accessed using the sftp command in the Terminal or command-line interface.

Once an administrator grants permission to a user for file transfer, the permission will remain active for the entire session. However, any modifications made to the permission during the same session will not take effect and the original permission will remain in effect until the session ends.
