Issue Details

  • I want to transfer files in LabVIEW using SFTP, but I cannot find any libraries to implement this. 
  • I want to communicate with a remote client via SSH using LabVIEW, but I cannot find any tools to implement this. 


Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) employs Secure Shell (SSH) protocol to provide file access, file transfer and file management over any reliable data stream.

NI doesn't currently have any SFTP or SSH software of its own, but Labvolution (NI Alliance partner) and LABWERX do. Labvolution provides LabSFTP and LabSSH library for free. LABWERX provides LabSSH, which is available for purchase.
