FTP Properties

Corner Bowl Server Manager enables you to monitor files and directories using FTP and FTPS enabling log management from any Linux or Unix device.

To configure FTP and FTPS

  • From the Explorer view, locate the FTP/S host you would like to monitor files from, right click then select Host Properties. The Host Properties view displays.
  • Select the SFTP tab.
  • Check the Enabled check box to use SFTP.
    After enabling FTP/S, all assigned File and Directory Templates will use FTP/S to download and monitor files and directories.
  • User the Port text box to specify a non-standard FTP/S port. The default port FTP port is 21 and the default FTPS port is 990.
  • Check the Use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) option to use FTPS.
  • Check the Validate certificate chain option to verify the validity of the servers's SSL Certificate. Deselect this option to enable self-signed certificates.
  • Use the Encryption mode drop-down to specify the encryption mode. The following modes are supported:
    ModeDescription
    None Uses plaintext FTP.
    Implicit (SSL) Directly connects in FTPS assuming the control connection is encrypted.
    Explicit (TLS) Connects in FTP and upgrades to FTPS, throws an exception if encryption is not supported.
    Auto Connects in plaintext FTP and then attempts to upgrade to FTPS (TLS) if supported by the server.
  • Use the Data channel encryption option to encrypt the data channel.
  • Use the Plain text encryption option to dsable encryption immediately after connecting with FTPS, using the CCC command. This is useful when you have a FTP firewall that requires plaintext FTP, but your server mandates FTPS connections.
  • Use the Username text box to specify your login username.
  • Use the Password text box to specify your login password.
  • Once you have specified the required parameters, click the Test button to verify the software is able to connect to the FTP/S server.
