Hello everyone,

I was building a nice app with LiveCode the other day.  It used PUT URL and FTP to download files from my remote Mac.  Worked like a charm until yesterday when I updated the OS on the remote Mac to Lion.  Now I get socket timeout messages.  I then read on the web that FTP is not enabled in Lion but SFTP works if Remote Login is enabled in the Sharing pane of System Preferences.  I confirmed that SFTP works by trying it with Interarchy.  How can I make SFTP work in a LiveCode handler?

Regards,

Gregory
