FTPS Plug-in

The FTPS plug-in is used to access remote servers using the FTP with TLS/SSL protocols. It is similar to the FTP plug-in, and can be used as both source of data and destination.

The FTPS plug-in is configurable. File system provided by the plug-in is organized as follows:

  • Top-level folders are FTPS configurations.
  • Folders are common FTPS folders. They have no attributes.
  • Files are common FTPS files. Supported attributes: file size, modification time.

You can learn about virtual file systems and attributes in Plug-in File Systems.

In most cases, the FTPS plug-in is used to securely store data or synchronize with a remote FTPS server.
