Re: [gftp] SFTP with dual authentication in gFTP?

Here is an example sftp login showing the exact passcode and password 
output.  There is a banner that I've stubbed in for the example, assuming 
that extraneous text is passed over looking for the specific "password" 

$ sftp sftpserver
Connecting to sftpserver...
 ************** *******************

    ... stubbed banner ...



That's it.  "Enter PASSCODE:" then, after successful passcode, "Password:"

I hoped it might be easy.
