Can Fetch do "SCH"? (3 posts)

    I'm a web developer with a new client who wants me to build him a new website. He runs his own server internally and says that the only way I can FTP into it is using SCH. I know that Fetch can handle SSH automatically, but can it also do SCH? I don't really know what SCH is, when I search the web for info about it I don't find much except what's at, which states:
    ""ssh" and "scp" are essentially "secure" versions of the UNIX "rsh" and "rcp" commands, (which in turn are a bit like the more familiar "telnet" and "ftp" programs). The "ssh" command provides command-line, (non-GUI), access to a remote server. "scp" allows files to be copied to/from a remote server. Both programs use the SSH protocol to encrypt all data passing between the client and the server.

    So that's why I'm guessing that Fetch also handles SCP and I can tell my new client that I should be able to access his server.

    Fetch does not currently support ssh, scp or sftp (a file transfer protocol based on ssh). I'm not sure what is meant by SCH.

    Support for sftp is at the top of our list for our next release. We probably won't support scp.

    Jim, thanks for your response. By the way, I had been told by a programmer I worked with in the past that Fetch does support SSH but apparently he was mistaken! He had recommended Fetch for accessing a server we were working on that supposedly required SSH, and Fetch did work on that server. But I guess this guy was confused.

    I will have to look for another Mac OS X FTP client that supports SSH and SCP. But of course I will keep using Fetch, I think it's an excellent application and have been satisfied with it for years now.

    Thanks for all your suport,
