Subject: [olug] sftp using cURL
i'm trying to push a file to an sftp server using curl. i keep getting a
"(1) protocol not supported or disabled in libcurl" error, but the cURL
"curl is a command line tool for transferring files with URL syntax,
supporting FTP, FTPS, HTTP, HTTPS, SCP, *SFTP*, TFTP, TELNET, DICT, FILE and
...so i'm fairly sure it supports the protocol.
my version is 7.18 (installed automatically through ubuntu 8.04 update
manager), but the website states....
*"The most recent stable version of curl is version 7.17.0"
*...so that may be an issue. seems weird that ubuntu would automatically
update me to a development version.
after browsing the website, i've hit a wall. i was hoping someone out there
on olug would have some knowledge to share. any help would be greatly
