The SFTP functionality of Termius lets you securely transfer files between two computers.
Termius from Mac App Store, Microsoft Store and Snap runs in the sandbox, and is not allowed to access your local drive. If you’re using this version of the app, you won’t be able to access your local computer in one of the SFTP panels. Here you can download Termius that is not sandboxed.
Before using SFTP, make sure you’ve added the remote host(s) to Termius. Then, open the SFTP screen. See below to learn more about using SFTP.
ℹ️ SFTP is a premium feature.
