How do I SFTP into my site with LFTP or SFTP commands?

If you wish to use the terminal to transfer files between servers, you can use either the lftp or sftp command line programs.

The LFTP Command

$ lftp s -e 'set sftp:connect-program "ssh -o PubkeyAuthentication=false"'

The SFTP Command

$ sftp -o PubkeyAuthentication=false


For more information about lftp and sftp, please see their respective manuals by running man lftp or man ssh from your terminal.
