Feature Page Elements

 

Element Name Description

SSL Certificate

Specifies the SSL certificate that you want to use for SSL.

noteNote
Selecting an SSL certificate enables SSL for a specific FTP site or FTP server. To disable SSL, select Not Selected from the drop-down list.

View

Opens the Certificate dialog box for the selected certificate.

Allow SSL Connections

Select this setting to allow data encryption for both the control channel and data channel when an SSL certificate is selected.

Require SSL Connections

Select this setting to require data encryption for both the control channel and data channel when an SSL certificate is selected.

noteNote
SSL requires additional processor time and slows down data transmissions because of the additional encryption data that must be transmitted.

Custom

Select this setting to customize the individual data encryption requirements for the control channel and data channel when an SSL certificate is selected.

noteNote
Selecting the Custom option enables the Advanced button; clicking Advanced will display the Advanced SSL Policy dialog box.

Use 128-bit encryption for SSL connections

Select this setting to require stronger encryption. You can use 128–bit SSL to help secure transmissions between your FTP server and clients in either an intranet or Internet environment.

noteNote
128–bit SSL requires more processor time and slows down data transmissions more than the 40–bit version does. This is because 128–bit SSL transmits additional encryption data to provide stronger encryption. Therefore, before requiring 128–bit SSL, you should make sure that your data transmissions need stronger encryption.
