Subject [jira] Commented: (VFS-94) Provide support for the FISH protocol

Mario Ivankovits commented on VFS-94:

... "but all you have at your disposal is SSH access."

What do you mean with *BUT*?
I dont know if you know, but we use sftp, which also requires "nothing more than a working
ssh daemon" on the server side, no special additional protocol. So from this point of view
sftp is the same as FISH.
The sftp daemon simply uses the ssh connection. Its a service within the same ssh connection.
From my point of view this is the same as with FISH, just that ssh/sftp is a public accepted

FISH would work with rsh too, but rsh is ancient stuff, no?

However, the aim of VFS is NOT to implement any protocol, just to use already existing *external*
libraries and provide a single api for them.

Do you know a already working java library for FISH?
Do you have any need for FISH?
