Has FTPES support been discarded?

#1 Post by robena » 2013-12-15 05:05

Hi,

It seems that FTPES support has been discarded with the latest releases.

I can see the option with 3.3.4.1, but not with subsequent releases, and I do need it (explicit) to connect to at least one site at the moment.

Am I missing some new setting with more recent versions?

Thanks.

Explicit FTP over TLS is alive, kicking and supported by FileZilla. You can select this encryption option in the Site Manager.

Oh, I see.

You have too chose FTP rather than SFTP to have the option in a different choice dialog now.

FTP was used for plain non-encrypted connections only with previous releases, I did not realize that this has changed.

Thanks.

It has been corrected. FTPES and FTPS aren't distinct protocols but only encryption types for the FTP protocol. SFTP, on the other hand, is a different protocol.
