Omniscien Technologies exchanges data occasionally via Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP). SFTP is a secure version of File Transfer Protocol (FTP), which facilitates data access and data transfer over a Secure Shell (SSH) data stream. All commands and data sent between the client and the server are encrypted in order to prevent passwords and other sensitive information from being transferred over the network in an open and clear format. All data stored on the Omniscien Technologies SFTP server is stored using encryption also.
You will need a client SFTP application to transfer data. If you are using Windows, we recommend FileZilla (https://filezilla-project.org/).
If SFTP access is required, your account manager will provide you with credentials so that you are able to connect.
The following settings should be configured in your client SFTP application:
|Host:||ftp.omniscien.com||Omniscien’s SFTP server|
|Protocol:||SFTP – SSH File Transfer Protocol||The protocol that will be used when transmitting data.|
|Logon Type:||Normal||The type of login that will be used when connecting.|
|User:||******************||Your account manager will provide you with a user and password.|

Once connected you will see 2 folders.
