EWR SFTP Servers Changes

posted December 21, 2011

As part of the Early Warning Reporting (EWR) environment update, the SFTP servers were replaced with a new set of servers. This necessitates manufacturers to verify the NHTSA SFTP servers by accepting the new remote host key once for each SFTP server.

Using Winscp the manufacturers may see a message similar to one below to verify the new SFTP servers' host key. This would be only one time activity and the Manufacturers shall not see any changes with the functionality of the SFTP servers.
