I want to create FTP client that can also supports SFTP and FTPS.
The client itself works, but I'm not realy familiar with those security method.

So to allow user use SFTP I need to set those
*SSH* settings, but do I have to do anything else?
For example use "sftp://server/path/" instead of "ftp://..."?

Regards and thank you for your patient ;)
