Problem with Dropbear/dbclient as SFTP client

Thanks for your quick answer.
If I understand correctly, the dbclient establishes the underlying SSH
connection with the SFTP server, but does not implement a whole SFTP
So I have to use a separate sftp client (such as sftp from OpenSSH), which
can rely on Dropbear to establish the SSH connection with the server.
OK, this is clearer now, thanks. I think that a mention of this on your
website or in the Readme file could be useful.

Dropbear doesn't have its own sftp client, but you can use
it with the OpenSSH sftp client:
sftp -S dbclient user at host
