sFTP

Regardless of which sFTP client you choose, the first time you connect to the server you may receive a warning that the identity of the server cannot be verified. Acknowledge the message and a cookie/file/registry setting will be automatically written to your computer, identifying the server. Once this is complete, you will no longer receive the warning message.
