Step 2: Create your SSH Key Pair

Depending on the operating system you are running you will need to follow steps to create a public and private SSH key pair on your machine. Use the links below for detailed instructions.

Mac, Linux or UNIX

Windows
SSH.com PuTTYGen

Step 3: Send Us Your Public SSH Key

After generating the SSH key pair in Step 2, you need to send us your public ssh key, not your private key. The private key stays on your local machine and should not be shared.

1. Contact Us
Send an email from the email associated with your RevCent account, to support@revcent.com with your attached PUBLIC key. We will verify the key is properly formatted and add it to your SFTP account.
Important: In the same email, let us know the date and time period you are going to transfer your data. The SFTP account will be enabled for the time period, and disabled immediately after.
2. Wait For Reply
After receiving your email and verifying the SSH key, we will confirm the date and time you wish to conduct the transfer.

Step 4: Transfer Data via SFTP

Use the details below with your SSH key pair from step 2 to connect to our SFTP server. Your SFTP account is given a specific home directory, your RevCent username. You will only be able to access and modify within this directory.
We recommend using FileZilla to transfer your encrypted data, however you can use any software or method you wish.
