    Have you tried the command:
    man sftp
    Here is what it says about the put command within sftp:
         put [-Ppr] local-path [remote-path]
                 Upload local-path and store it on the remote machine.  If the
                 remote path name is not specified, it is given the same name it
                 has on the local machine.  local-path may contain glob(3) charac‐
                 ters and may match multiple files.  If it does and remote-path is
                 specified, then remote-path must specify a directory.
                 If ether the -P or -p flag is specified, then full file permis‐
                 sions and access times are copied too.
                 If the -r flag is specified then directories will be copied
                 recursively.  Note that sftp does not follow symbolic links when
                 performing recursive transfers.
