BeagleBone SFTP issues with Demo Images

When using the demo images and attempting to use WinSCP or some other sftp application you may get an error like

“Cannot initialize SFTP protocol. Is the host running a SFTP server?” from WinSCP or

“Connecting
[SFTP] Host key accepted
[SFTP] Successfully authenticated
[SFTP] Error initialising sftp: Access denied. Authentication that can continue: publickey,password
Unable to connect”

from Notepad++

This is due to demo images not including the openssh-sftp-server package by default

To install login to the Beaglebone using SSH (via putty) and run

opkg update

opkg install openssh-sftp-server

Your WinSCP or Notepad++ or other SFTP application should now work nicely
