SecureFX API?

My company purchased SecureFX and VShell so that we can replace our FTP pull and push engines with SFTP instead.

Currently, we are unaware of any methods other than firing and waiting on the SFXCL command from a local shell. Ideally, we'd like to have access to a SecureFX API where we can call the API functions from within our C++, VB or Python code.

Can you guys provide access to a SecureFX library that we can use with our application?

Thanks.

We've had some internal discussions about adding a COM interface to SecureCRT, SecureFX, or vsftp.

What functionality would you need in the API?

We just need API calls for GET, PUT and LIST commands. One of the problems with using the Command-Line option is that we have to extract the request status by analyzing the data steam that is returned by the VShell server. Also, we have no control over the incoming file stream. SecureFX does not write incoming streams to temporary files before the complete transfer. So we have no means to write abort routines when something snags.

If we had an API, we would do something like

RC = SFTP->Get(HostName, UserName, Pswd)

and deal with the RC on a case by case failure/exception basis.

We will wrap the SFTP access code inside a windows service that needs to periodically pick up and process files from a source server.

Hi Sputcha,

I did receive your email message and have responded.

Please let me know if you did not receive it.

If anyone is interested in having an API for SecureFX or SecureCRT, please let us know.

This is something that we are considering possibly creating for these applications and are curious to see how many people would be interested.
