Description (last modified by Nicklas Nordborg)

A file item could register an external URL like:

sftp://my.file.server/path/to/file.txt

The file item must be connected to a FileServer item which contains connection parameters. A host, username, password and SSH fingerprint is required. A root path is recommended to prevent access to sensitive files. The connection manager uses SSH to connect to the server and a download the file.

Wrap remote stream in a BufferedInputStream for increased performance. Without the buffer a typical download speed was 0.5MB/s. With the buffer it went up to 10MB/s.
