Connect to an Adobe FTP account with SFTP

Instructions to set up secure transfer with Adobe FTP servers.

  1. Request an Adobe hosted FTP account (50 MB quota).

  2. Create Public/Private RSA keys. In Linux, run:

    ssh-keygen -t rsa

    If you are in a Windows environment, use puttyGen to create the keys.

  3. Create a file named authorized_keys (no extension).

  4. Copy the contents of the Public key into authorized_keys.

  5. Upload authorized_keys to an FTP account:

    • Connect to the Adobe FTP account.
    • Create a .ssh directory (if it does not already exist).
    • Upload the authorized_keys file to the .ssh directory.
  6. Test the connection by logging in to the FTP account using SFTP.
