Manage the FTP server

To use FTP, specify the FTP settings for both the SecureTransport Edge and SecureTransport Server.

  1. Select Enable FTP.
  2. The default FTP port number is 21 for root installation and 8021 for non-root installation. If the default port is in use, SecureTransport displays a message and you must change the FTP Port to use a port number other than the default setting.
  3. Note FTP might already be running on port 21. To avoid a port conflict, you can disable FTP at the OS level or assign it a different port number instead of changing the port number in SecureTransport.
  4. To enabled FTPS:
    1. Select Enable FTPS.
    2. Select an SSL Key Alias from the drop-down list, for example, ftpd. For information about storing the FTPS certificate in a hardware security module, see Store certificates in a hardware security module.
    3. To restrict FTPS connections to FIPS 140-2 Level 1 certified cryptographic libraries, select the Enable FIPS Transfer Mode check box. For more information, see FIPS transfer mode.
  5. Click Start.
Note To enable FTP without SSL (FTP and not FTPS), you must disable SSL FTP connections and create an SSL encryption entry for a user class with SSL encryption optional. See Manage SSL access.

For information about more FTP settings, see Configure FTP server messages and modes.
