We have our guacamole set up where users can connect to a machine via VNC and connect to 1 of 25 available connections.  Our users have a requirement to SFTP files between their desktops and the VNC connection.  However, according to the documentation, the SFTP requires a user name and password.  Since we don’t know at log in time what their username and password is, how do we set up the connection to allow the SFTP?  Do we have to have a generic SFTP user setup on the client machine that allows them to SFTP files?  Or is there a way we can set up the SFTP username/password at connect-time dynamically?
