Connecting via FTP

Introduction

Blackhawk Network supports sending orders through SFTP.

Connecting using SSH with password (SFTP)

  1. Open up the FTP client software (for this example we will be using FileZilla)

  2. Locate the screen in FTP client software and enter in the following FTP requirements.

    Use the information list below. - See Example 1.1

    • Host or FTP URL: ftpssh.intelispend.com

    • ServerType: SFTP – SSH File Transfer Protocol

    • Port: 22 – (In some FTP client software if the user selects Servertype it defaults the port number for that Servertype. If not enter in the port number)

    • LogonType: Normal

    • Username: jsample – (enter the username provided)

Connect using SSH with public/private keys (SFTP)

  1. You will need to decide whether to use your own SSH keys or ones generated by Blackhawk Network.

    • Using SSH keys generated by Blackhawk Network

      • Blackhawk Network will generate private and public SSH keys and send you the private key.
      • You will use the private key in your FTP client software.
      • The public key is stored on Blackhawk Network FTP server.
    • Using Your Own SSH keys

      • You will sends your SSH public key to Blackhawk Network.
      • Blackhawk Network will install the SSH public key on Blackhawk Network's FTP server.
      • You will use your own private key in your FTP client software.
  2. Open up the FTP client software (for this example we will be using FileZilla).

  3. Locate the screen that allows importing of private SSH keys.
    Import the private key. - See example 1.8
