Yes. It is SFTP, and I found that filetransfer.FileTransferServer is a
subsystem under UnixConchUser.


However, I was able to start a ssh shell by using SSHFactory and
UnixSSHReam, but I was not able to start SFTP as sub system.

Do I need to do anything explicitly to start sftp subsystem?


newbie in Python and Twisted.
