It was the first week in my office and got the opportunity to access our company server which is somewhere in USA.I was excited to use it because Centos installed in it.My assignment is to connect my pc with the server via ftp.I never connected ftp so it was a challenge to me.But i found it difficult to connect because i’m a newbie.I tried six precious hours but i failed to connect.After a long struggle i got a clue to connect via sftp.Finally i succeeded in transferring some files.It was a very good experience for me.The following are the steps to connect the server via sftp
