Configure Tomato to be an SFTP server?

    I've been doing some research and have come to find that some Linksys firmware (like DD-WRT & OpenWrt) can be modified to turn the router into an SFTP server.

    Is it possible to do this with Tomato? If so, how?

    I'm currently running Tomato v1.19 on a Linksys WRT54G v2 router.

    Thanks in advance!

    why? and what for?

    Tomato already has ssh + scp which work fine with winscp

    Note that dd-wrt uses/used the OpenWRT kernel. Tomato is based on the Linkys kernel with userspace dropbear providing ssh/scp so cannot use the optware package delivery system, although you can sometimes manually install binaries.

    Yes probably, but it requires some modifications..
    I don't think the stock firmware can be configured for sftp server

    Because it'd be cool to have a mini-SFTP server at the edge of my network without me having to actually setup a full-fledged server. And, yes, I'm aware of WinSCP and it works really well, but I primarily run OS X Leopard. The only thing GUI-wise that comes close to it and that works on OS X is Mindterm.

    This doesn't answer your question but the application "Fugu" also does SCP quite well (as well as SSH) on OS X.
