i am using the Sftp component to connect to a remote machine and am getting the error "No such host is know". Does SSH need to be set up on both the host and remote machine. Current ssh is only running on the remote box, the host machine which has the rebex component does not have SSH installed. I cant see anything in your documentation.

From the exception text it looks you either mistype server name or remote machine is unreachable. Please ensure you are able to ping the remote machine (please use the same string as you are using in your code when calling the Sftp.Connect(“serverName”) method).

There is no need to install SSH on the client machine (computer which has the Rebex component).
