SFTP Close Dir.vi connector pane


Close an SFTP directory which was previously opened for reading.

Directory must have been opened for reading by calling SFTP Open Dir.vi.

The process required to list the contents of a directory goes as follows:

  1. Call SFTP Open Dir.vi to open the directory for reading.
  2. Call SFTP Read Dir.vi repeatedly until it returns an empty filename. An empty filename indicates that all files have been read.
  3. Call SFTP Close Dir.vi to close the directory.


This is a low-level VI whose usage is not typical. For a quick 1-step directory listing function, use SFTP EZ Directory Listing.vi.
