    sftp installation:

    ipkg install openssh-sftp-server

    No processes are returned:

    ps | grep -i sftp

    **How does one start the openssh-sftp-server remotely via CLI (command line)?**

    I was expecting these processes to be returned:

    1866 user 1416 S sh -c /opt/libexec/sftp-server
    1867 user 2672 S /opt/libexec/sftp-server
