You will have to provide the plugin your email address, destination url, SFTP host name, SFTP username, and SFTP password.
2) Does this plugin work with Multisite?
Yes! This has been fully developed to work with Multisite. If moving a Multisite, make sure to Network Activate the plugin.
3) Can I migrate a single WordPress install into a Multisite using this plugin?
