edtFTPnet/PRO is a client library which is used for making secure transfers (SFTP and FTPS) to/from FTP servers.

CompleteFTP is an FTP server for Windows supporting SFTP and FTPS (well, 1.1 doesn't support SFTP, but 2.0 will be released next week and does offer full SFTP support).

So if you want to connect to a Windows server running cygwin (including an SFTP server on port 22), you'll need edtFTPnet/PRO.

If you don't want to use cygwin for the SFTP server, you can replace it with CompleteFTP.

Obviously Complete FTP is fully compatible with edtFTPnet/PRO as they are in fact built on the same code-base. Unless you are using some of the really specialized features of Cygwin's sshd, then Complete FTP should satisfy your requirements amply. You will find that it's far easier to configure. Its virtual file system will give you much better control over where directories are placed and its user management makes it much easier to create and manage users.

Does that answer your question?

Hi Bob

After reading Bruce's reply I thought I might've misunderstood your question and I'm still a little unsure what you meant, so I just want to reiterate what Bruce said to make sure there is no confusion. Complete FTP is a an SFTP server, whereas edtFTPnet/PRO is an SFTP client. So, while they can be used together, they are not interchangeable.
