control channel only tls

would be glad to see options to use tls only for
control channel (i.e. login and commands), not bulk
(it's done in flashfxp). even better if this could be
negotiated automatically (that's done in ftptls).

why? because that's all that most people need, and all
that many servers are willing to provide

good luck with the rewrite.

My Provider said "no data, only Login should be encrypted"

Your missing feature might be the reason for my problem I
have with TLS described in

"2.2.7c: Problem with sFTP (via TLS explizit)" (inludes Logfile)

Bug [ 965367 ] Connection Hangs Using TLS
seams to be the same.

May will become a (F)requently (A)sk (F)eature ...

The mentioned bug report has been closed already (reference only):
#641 - Connection Hangs Using TLS

Furthermore, modern servers are able to perfectly well handle the load of full encryption and the bottle neck is not the CPU, but the network. Rejecting this RFE.

Issue #2161 covers this feature as well.
