    Limagito SFTP Server Public Key Authentication

    Q: SFTP Server Public Key Authentication. Quick question regarding limagito and it’s SFTP server. Is it possible to configure an ssh key instead of using user / password?
    A: In version v2021.10.13 we added the possibility to use Public Key authentication with our SFTP server.

    We used PuTTY Key Generator to create a Public and Private key file. Click the ‘Generate’ button and move your mouse around. Afterwards we added a passphrase and saved the public and private key to a file.

    Saved .ppk files:

    Next open the SFTP Server Setup and select the ‘Accounts’ tab. Choose the User Account which you want to add the Public Key file to. Select the Public Key File and do not forget to click the ‘Save’ button of the ‘User Account Setup’ (at the top).

    Click ‘Save’ button at the bottom to close the SFTP Server Setup

    If you want to be sure that the Publice Key file was loaded correctly then you please check the SFTP server Log.

    To enable logging of the SFTP Server (Logging Tab):

    We used the default log folder. It is never ever a good idea to put a log file on a network share, please always use a local drive.

    SFTP Server log content, search for ‘Public Key’. In our case no loading error, so we are good to go.

    We tested the Public Key Authentication using our own File Mover. Be sure to select our second API Vendor: Vendor 2 – CK.

    Select the ‘Security’ Tab and add your Private Key File and Private Key Password (only if you added a password/passphrase to this file).

    Howto unzip JPG from ZIP files using Limagito File Mover

    Q: I would like to unzip JPG from a ZIP files. Every ZIP files contain JPG, XML. I would try to extract only JPG files from ZIP, but I can’t do it. All files are extracted, that obliges me to add deletion rule to delete XML files in the target folder.  Is it possible to build a rule, and ask for extract only .JPG files from ZIP ?

    A: In version v2021.10.8.0 we added a new Extract Mask option in the UNZIP Destination Setup to achieve this. We immediately added an include and exclude Extract Mask.

    • Extract Include Mask ( default *.* )
    • Extract Exclude Mask ( default ‘blanco’ )

    In this example we set the ‘Extract Include Mask’ to  *.jpg  so only jpg files form the zip (or other compressed file) will be extracted.

    How-To Silent Install Limagito File Mover

    We are using Inno Setup as installer. Inno Setup is a powerful installer and has quite some optional command line parameters. Recently a customer had an issue trying to achieve a silent install. We fixed this in the installer starting from v2021.10.6.0

    Some examples, be sure the command is run elevated (As Administrator). We have dowloaded the 64bit installer in “C:\Test\Setup\”.

    Example of a silent install including our Web Remote option (one long line of command parameters):

    “C:\Test\Setup\setup.limagitox.x64.exe” /TASKS=”web” /VERYSILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /LOG /NORESTART /FORCECLOSEAPPLICATIONS

    Example of a silent install excluding our Web Remote option (one long line of command parameters):

    “C:\Test\Setup\setup.limagitox.x64.exe” /VERYSILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /LOG /NORESTART /FORCECLOSEAPPLICATIONS
