FTPS Properties

Corner Bowl Server Manager enables you to manage files and directories using FTPS enabling log management from any Windows, Linux or other Unix-based server.

To configure FTP/S

  • From the Explorer view, locate the FTPS server you would like to monitor files from, right click then select Host Properties. The Host Properties view displays.
  • Select the FTPS tab.
  • Check the Enabled check box to enable FTPS.
    Alert After enabling FTPS, all assigned File and Directory Templates will use FTPS to download and monitor files and directories.
  • User the Port text box to specify a non-standard FTPS port. The default FTPS port is 990 and the default FTP port is 21.
  • Check the Use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) option to encrypt the connection using FTPS, otherwise insecure FTP is used.
  • 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:
    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 FTPS server.
