How to set up CoreFTP to use FTP over SSL?

FTP > Configuring FTP over SSL
Windows 2008/IIS 7 allows a secure FTP connection via FTP over SSL. Note that this is not the same as SFTP (FTP via SSH), so you may have to experiment a bit with your FTP client settings to get a secure connection. Our tests were successful with the following.

   1. Click File -> Connect
   2. Choose New Site and enter your chosen site name
   3. Fill in the following fields:
  • Host - Enter FTP address( like, which can be found in Control Panel
  • Set the "Connection" Field to "Auth SSL"
  • Username – Enter your FTP username.
  • Password – Enter the password for this user.
   5. SSL Options
  • SSL Listings; SSL Transfer; OpenSSL
   6. Click Connect

Note: If you receive a generic "could not connect" error, or in implicit mode see an attempted connection to port 21, you have a configuration error. Please cut and paste the login information from Control Panel to make sure you are supplying the proper credentials.
