Configure FTP servers

To use FTP, specify the FTP settings for the SecureTransport Server in non-streaming environments. In streaming environments, specify the FTP settings for the SecureTransport Edge.

  1. Select Enable FTP. Additionally, if needed, select Enable FTPS.
  2. If FTP is already running on port 21 (8021) at the OS level, change the FTP Port to use a port number other than the default setting of 21 for root installations and 8021 for non-root installations.
  3. Note Additionally, to avoid a port conflict, disable FTP at the OS level or assign it a different port number instead of changing the port number in SecureTransport.
  4. If you enabled FTPS, select an SSL Key Alias from the drop-down list, for example, ftpd.
  5. If you enabled FTPS, to restrict FTPS connections to FIPS 140-2 Level 1 certified cryptographic libraries, select the Enable FIPS Transfer Mode check box.
  6. Click Start.
Note Configuring the FTP servers does not enable plain FTP. By default, the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is enabled for all protocols. To enable plain FTP, a SSL user rule with encryption optional must be created. For information on creating SSL user rules, refer to the SecureTransport Administrator's Guide.
