Filezilla using explicit TLS

Hi guys!


I'm trying to config my webgateway (9.2.2) to be able to manage FTP with explicit TLS using Filezilla.

Does anyone was able to do?

Re: Filezilla using explicit TLS

Hi @PierreRodrigue 

handling encrypted FTP Traffic (FTP over TLS) is problematic. In most cases, and in terms of firewalling, you would need to open the whole available portrange for the webgateway.

The main problem is PASV Mode transfer as the data transferports are negotiated encrypted here, so the firewall behind the webgateway cannot see which transfer ports are used and in consequence the firewall inspection cannot open these transfer ports, like it would happen when using unencrypted FTP.

If you need to get encrypted FTP through the Webgateway, I'd suggest to use sFTP.

Best regards
