Apache Web Server Forum

Apache and sftp

Msg#: 4576898 posted 9:40 am on May 23, 2013 (gmt 0)

Hi all,

I have inherited a Java web services project from a former colleague and so fairly new to Java and Apache. The project uses Apache running under a specific active directory user account to retrieve documents from a Storage Area Network (SAN). Now the FTP process is to be made into secure FTP. We have managed to set up the SAN device to allow only certain Windows accounts but this is limited to 15 concurrent connections.

My question is because Apache is running a single specific Windows account will this mean only one connection will be created and closed constantly or will the 15 concurrent connections quickly run out?

Thanks in advance

welcome to WebmasterWorld, Alano!

perhaps i am misunderstanding your question, but apache uses HTTP(S) protocol so it's a different protocol from SFTP and makes connections on different ports.

Thanks Phranque for your response.

Maybe it is me that is misunderstanding the problem and so question maybe confusing. So I have just looked at the project again (It was not my project originally), and have discovered that the retrival of the document on the SAN does not necessarily occur through Apache as I can retrive a document from the SAN with the project running locally on my PC and I do NOT have Apache installed but Apache Tomcat.

So My question maybe is not for the Apache forum, but what is required to allow the Java web service that retrieves a document over sftp?

Thanks again
