sftp in Ubuntu 9.10

For whatever reason, I have not been able to sftp to the LSA servers using FileZilla, the Nautilus browser (it crashes) or the terminal command:

$ sftp://servername.umich.edu

So I installed putty and putty-tools

$ sudo apt-get install putty

And have been able to get it working from the command line:

$ psftp servername.umich.edu

commands of note:
ls, cd, lcd, pwd, lpwd, put, get, mv
psftp> ls
psftp> put -r LTER_ContentTypes
psftp > ls /Dept/umbs/dept/


I've since gotten sftp via the terminal to work:

$ sftp usernamer@servername.umich.edu

to specify a port:
$ sftp -oPort=[portnumber] usernamer@servername.umich.edu
