Does anyone know if there is a way to manage ftps (implicit or explicit) with the FTP proxy ?

Re: ftp to ftps proxy


Hope you are doing well.

Explicit FTPS: The server listens on the normal FTP control port {FTP-PORT} and the  session initiation is not secured at all.  Once the client wishes to  secure the session, the AUTH command is sent and the server MAY then allow TLS negotiation to take place.

Implicit FTPS: An implicit connection starts with the client issuing a TLS “Client Hello” message.


Best option to pass ftps (implicit or explicit)  would be using SOCKS proxy on MWG.
