I wanted to suggest a few enhancements to the biztalk sftp config interface that would make the product must easier to use.

1. Add browse for file dialogs for the Private and Trusted Key files. Simple fix, but a big time saver.

2. Validate the remote file path property. If you add the remote file path with a leading "/" the software adds a second one so you get "SFTP://host:22//rpath/*.*". If the interface could atleast tell you to leave off the "/" it would be helpful.

3. Notify when username property has a trailing space. Not sure if this is allowd by the ssh / sftp specs, but I doubt many people use username with a trailing space. If the interface ask "Hey, do you mean to have a trailing space" that would be nice. I just spent 30 minutes trying to figure out why my public key auth was failing. Turned out to be a trailing space from when I cut and pasted the username. I have had the same problem with the host name before, and I know that a trailing space on the host name is not valid.

None of these are big things, but could save a lot of time if fixed.

Thank you for your recommendations. All of them are quite reasonable, so we will implement all the necessary changes to the implementation.
