We're trying to make SFTP work on 7.1 as a client. Few questions: 1. Is it best practice to setup different keys for each host that we'll be sending files to? Any issues with using just 1 set of keys? 2. Do we need to regenerate the keys when we switch to a DR box or to a new system with a different IP? 3. Can 1 dedicated profile be used to send to different hosts or we need to setup 1 for each hosts? Can 1 profile have different public and private keys? Thank you in advance.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

1. I would use just one set of keys.
2. Yes, and also your auditors will tell you to regenerate keys at least once a year.
3. I would use one profile/password on the source system, and different profiles/passwords on the targets.

    1. I would say not a problem to have one set of keys.
    2. Yes you should regenerate keys at that time. Your auditors will tell you that  should do it anyway on a periodic basis anyway.
    3. You can use the same profile on the source system to use for all targets.
