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?

"While FTP is still available and configurable from the command line, it's no longer supported as an easy to turn on option in System Preferences"
