Thank you. After I added sftp:// I am getting a message:
"* Protocol "sftp" not supported or disabled in libcurl"
doh, so it looks to me that sftp is not built-in in the curl and I have to
recompile ... I will try to follow some document that describes it,

It worked for me without L, but you are right, I will update it.

Okay, it will do it for me, but how will I get the information if the
server's key has changed (something like the message 'key is unknown, do
you agree to proceed')? I mean if server's key has changed/is unknown then
user should approve the connection, right?
