#1683 closed Feature request

Data channel not encrypted option?

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Alexander Schuch
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc: Alexander Schuch, Eirik

I've been trying to get filezilla to work with a ftp server that
has the control connection encrypted but not the data
connection, I was not able to get it to work, as filezilla
requires the data connection to be encrypted.

The kind of setup I was testing is found on some servers
and also if you want to encrypt the control connection of a
non secure server using a ssl wrapper.

I think that making filezilla automatically detect if the data
connection is crypted or not and have the user aprove non
encrypted connections would be good, another alternative
could be to have an option to assume that the data
connections of a server are not encrypted and when this
option is on, unencrypted data is allowed.

Hope you like the idea and implement it and keep on
making your program the best windows ftp client ;-)

BTW: what about a Linux port?

More a feature request than a support request - moved.

FileZilla 3 (beta) is available for Unix as well already.

Can you test FileZilla 3 (beta) so see if it works for you in your case? Can you give an (anonymous) account on such a server so it can be tested? It looks like a very uncommon setup to me.
