I'm using python paramiko, to connect to an SFTP portal. But, every time I run this code it fails with this error
paramiko.ssh_exception.AuthenticationException: Authentication failed.
This is the code I'm using:
import paramiko host = 'https://sftp-portal.com' port = 1022 username = 'username' password = 'password!' transport = paramiko.Transport((host,port)) transport.connect(None,username,password) sftp = paramiko.SFTPClient.from_transport(transport) sftp.get('/files/csv/example.csv', '/Users/User/Desktop') sftp.close()
What am I doing wrong? any help with this is highly appreciated.
