QtCreator Deployment: Why sftp and not scp

  • Hi everybody
    I'm testing at the moment the deployment features of the qtcreator between PC and beagleboard.
    After I while I realized that I have to install vsftpd on the beagleboard to complete the deployment.
    Why is it not possible to have a deployment with scp which runs on my target out of the box?
    Is there a chance that scp deployment will be a feature of a next release?

    Sftp is build into the SSH servers. There is no need to install a separate FTP daemon.

  • on embedded systems it's usually disabled for size reasons.
    any actual answer to this?
