FTP over SSL is now available

Publicado el Saturday 2 June 2007, a 00:51 UTC

Hi folks,

We fought against the FTP server to provide FTP over SSL and we won this time.

Be careful, you may have troubles while connecting to FTP servers with SSL enabled. On our, don't try to use active mode (ie. the server connects to the client for data transmission), it won't work because the server will not be able to reach you due to NAT traversal issue on our side (SSL prevent any FTP conntrack to work), anyway it won't work for clients behind NATs. So you must use passive mode (ie. the client connects to the server in all cases), but this will work only if you can connect to the server on any TCP port (FTP conntrack present in all NAT gateways won't help you if the connection is encrypted), in other words you should not have any filtering rules for output or trust ftp.tuxfamily.net. If you are behind a transparent FTP proxy it won't work too...

Contact us if you encounter problems (only if you are not in the wrong previous cases :p).
