Enable SFTP on Solaris 11

Once you’ve installed an OpenSSH server, you also have an SFTP server. In Solaris, you should check if the subsystem is configured properly or not.

Configuration is stored in /etc/ssh/sshd_config file:

# sftp subsystem
Subsystem       sftp    internal-sftp
PubkeyAuthentication    yes

Restart the service:

svcadm refresh svc:/network/ssh:default
