Try WinSCP (https://winscp.net/eng/). You do not need to enable anything on the VPS.

You can use a normal FTP client which supports SFTP, such as FileZilla.

I'm not sure if this question will get answered, but I'm having some trouble with pulling the OpenVPN config file.

I installed nano and used "nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config" to change the port to the SSH port specified in the helpful Knowledgebase calculator (https://hosting.gullo.me/plugin/support … ew/17/p2/5).

But whenever I try to use WinSCP to connect to my External IP + SSH port edited in the sshd_config file, along with root/mypw for the credentials, the connection doesn't go through. It may be helpful (?) to note that my external IP + port 22 and a console-XXX/pw combination in the Serial Console section in my SolusVM has a successful connection but then refuses due to a large size of some sort.

Any help would be hugely appreciated!

Have you restarted sshd?

I did input "service restart sshd" but it doesn't return anything; just goes to the next line. I wasn't sure if it was actually restarting so I went ahead and rebooted as well.

Re: How to enable SFTP for my NAT VPS?

depending on what ports you have assigned to your server and the port you set in your sshd_config file... it could also be the case that you set the config to a port that isn't forwarded to your server.

I've double checked that aspect - port is 1x820 which is the same as the one returned to me by the tool I linked above.

Gullo is not a part of LES, can’t say anything about the tool you linked to.
Who is your provider? Since you are using that tool, I assume it is Gullo?
