Is there any native iOS or Android library to connect to SFTP site ?

ayadhalalayadhalal AEMember ✭✭

Hello ,

Im building an android & ios application in which i need to connect to an SFTP site to download images .
As far as I know there is not native .net for SFTP .
I checked some nuget libraries but couldn't add any as they are not compatible with the framework .
I also found some components in xamarin store which are not free .
My inquiry ,is there a native or free component or library in iOS or Android which i can use to connect to SFTP site ?

I appreciate any help

    Hello ayad!

    Does it really need to be native?

    There are several .net libraries that do just that. is one, though it is not maintained anymore and has some bugs, I recently moved to which I am reasonably happy with. Next to SSH, both support SCP and SFTP.

    I would expect them to work in Xamarin environment, too. If not, you could still try grabbing the relevant code parts.
