Using FTP over TLS

Posted at October 23, 2015 at 8:30 am by InterServer Staff

TroubleFree servers (Linux/FreeBSD) Support FTP connections over TLS. Many common FTP programs do not support FTP over TLS however. Some examples which do are lftp (linux/freebsd) and SmartFTP (windows). FTP over TLS will give you 128 bit encryption over TLSv1. You should pick ftp over ssl explicit. If you are behind a firewall you may need to open ports 131 and 194. Important NOTE: You must connect to FTP over TLS using the server hostname not your domain name. The SSL certificate is generated for the server hostname and would fail otherwise.
