  • SFTP starting directory

    In my FTP software, I can set a starting directory which will take me to any directory on which I have permissions.

    However, in setting up an SFTP connection in BC to a Linux server, I am taken to my username's home directory. I need to move upward to the root of the server, then downward into the content directories. I have permissions on the entire drive and have no problem using SFTP in my FTP software, but I can find no way to tell BC to start at the root - and therefore I have no way to browse downward.

    Thanks,

    Tom

    Add an extra slash to the path to go to the root of the server.

    Examples:
    The home directory of your user account:
    sftp://user@server/

    The root directory of your server:
    sftp://user@server//

    The local path /usr/local:
    sftp://user@server//usr/local/
