Dear All,

I would like to program a browser-based GUI that would allow a client to transfer files and entire directories through an SFTP-like (or pure SSH) protocol - the only method I have found for this task until present is a java applet.

Is such a thing possible through ssh and php - and if so, can anyone point to me to some comprehensive documention on the subject?

Thanks in advance,

Sefu.

Does it have to be a browser based gui?

If not you could use something like WinSCP

I'd like to provide a web-based gui as an option for those accessing our service from a public computer - the ssh in this case would be password-based. Of course there will be an option of accessing our website using an ssh client (or even the command line), but I would like to leave all possibilities open for all levels of users. Thanks all the same for your kind reply.
