I am trying to connect to a remote SFTP server using PHP. My code works fine when I connect to a local SFTP account but it times out for remote host. I have made sure through FTP client that host information is correct and its connecting fine.
I am using phpseclib library and my three line code is below.
require_once("phpseclib/Net/SFTP.php"); $sftp = new Net_SFTP('remote_host_IP'); var_dump($sftp->login('<username>', '<password>'));
It returns false (meaning not connected).
What I have done
- I have whitelisted script in mod_security just in case its blocking that.
- I have tried same script on my local computer and it connects successfully to remote SFTP.
Any valuable hint please?
