    Not sure I understand the question but you can just as easy use SFTP with your FTP client, for example I use and swear by: CuteFTP Pro. (google it if interested)

    cPanel can auto configure multiple FTP clients for you. Click FTP Accounts icon in your cPanel, scroll to find the Account Management Section where you'll find your username and another username_logs.

    To the far right of the username item you'll find an icon to Configure FTP client (hard to see/read but it's there) click it.

    Here you'll find options for other FTP clients. Filezilla, Core, Cyberduck. If you have one of those installed you can auto configure from this page.

    Or, use the File Manager.

    I'd second FileZilla over any other FTP client.

    I did wonder, though, is there a reason SFTP is being selected over TLS for secure FTP? TLS is a newer, more secure encryption method without requiring the insecurity of enabling a shell for all users that SFTP requires. It is also provided in FileZilla and available by default in WHM > FTP Server Configuration area using the TLS Encryption Support section (it's automatically set to Optional there).

    You can even force TLS encryption for all users over both the data and command levels, thereby making FTP secure only on the machine (so no passwords are ever sent without encryption).

    Of note, if you switch to TLS, you will need to use FTPES - FTP over explicit TLS/SSL in FileZilla as the Servertype in File > Site Manager section. FTPS - FTP over implicit TLS/SSL is not supported.

    Yup, this problem is solved by using a more common FTP Client such as Filezilla.
