FTP over TLS/SSL

You are reading this article because you want to make sure you are using encrypted connection with your ftp.

Using regular ftp is 100% insecure as it sends your ftp username and password in plain text. Any worthy hacker/network sniffer will be able to grab your login details in an instant.

Using TLS however, encrypts your login details when connecting ensuring your details are private.

High Speed Web Services supports and encourages the use of FTP over TLS/SSL connections when using ftp.

However, some extra settings are needed when using FTP over TLS/SSL.

Below you will find screenshots of the following software and how to configure them for use with FTP over TLS/SSL connection.

- Filezilla (windows/mac)
- Transmit FTP (mac)
- Dreamweaver CS6 (previous versions of DW do not support SSL connections)
