SFTP is a file transfer protocol that runs over SSH, so all data is strongly encrypted in transit.
Just connect to
sftp.orbit.brightbox.com using your Brightbox email address and password, or your API client identifier and secret.
$ sftp email@example.com@sftp.orbit.brightbox.com firstname.lastname@example.org@sftp.orbit.brightbox.com's password: Connected to sftp.orbit.brightbox.com. sftp> ls container1 container2 images
If you are a collaborator on multiple accounts, then you can specify the account by adding the account identifier to the end of the username, separated with a colon:
$ sftp email@example.com:firstname.lastname@example.org
SFTP gives you convenient access to data stored in Orbit, but if you’re integrating Orbit into your system, we recommend that you use the OpenStack Swift-compatible HTTP interface rather than SFTP. The HTTP interface is higher performance and supports the full Orbit feature-set, such as managing metadata and configuring access control.
