WG 6.8 FTP over Explicit TLS / SSL

Hi

Is it possible to set an FTP client to FTP over Explicit TLS / SSL while using Web Gateway as a proxy.

When I try I get an error saying Cannot understand AUTH TLS and cannot understand AUTH SSL.

As soon as I remove the proxy from the equation then everything works with the same setting

thanks

TLS is no supported by the FTP proxy. But on the list for a future version.

Hi Michael

thanks for your reply. Is FTPS an issue with Webgateway 7 as well at the moment?

Hi Ian,

Web Gateway 7's FTP proxy does not support FTPS currently. I believe Michael meant that this is on the list in a newer version (of 7).

Hi Jon,

This post has been dormant for some time however can you confirm if FTPS is now supported in the latest version of MWG (7.4.2.X)

Hi JD,

It is possible to pass FTPS traffic through the MWG using the SOCKS proxy. However, this is not a protocol that the MWG has the ability to inspect and scan content yet.

Best Regards,

Jon
