The FTP Connection Manager contains the following three pages to connect to FTP server.
- Advanced Settings
- More Info
The General page on the FTPS Connection Manager allows you to specify general settings for the connection.
- Host Name
The Host Name represents the Server containing your FTPS server.
- Passive Mode
The Passive Mode option will specify the setup of your FTPS server. If left unselected, the mode specified will be active.
The Encryption option allows you to specify no encryption or TLS.
- Connection Type
The Connection Type option is enabled when the Encryption property is set to TLS. The Connection Type specifies if you would like to connect to TLS through Explicit or Implicit mode.
Enter the Username option for the account you would like to specify.
- Specify the Password for the Username account.
The Port is set to default values - when no encryption or TLS encryption with the Explicit Connection Type is selected, the default port is 21. Otherwise, when TLS with the Implicit Connection Type option is selected, the default port is set to 990.
- Timeout (secs)
The Timeout (secs) option allows you to specify a timeout value in seconds for the connection. The default value is 120 seconds.
- Test Connection
After all the connection information has been provided, you may click the Test Connection button to test if the connection settings entered are valid.
The Advanced Settings page on the FTPS Connection Manager allows you to specify some advanced and optional settings for the connection.
- Proxy Type (Proxy Server Information)
The Proxy Type option let you select if you are using a Proxy, and if so, what type.
- Port (Proxy Server Information)
The Port option allows you to specify port number of the proxy server for the connection.
- Username (Proxy Server Authentication)
The Username option allows you to specify the proxy user account.
Using Password option (under Proxy Server Authentication) allows you to specify the proxy user's password.
NOTE: The Proxy Password is not included in the FTPS connection manager's ConnectionString property by default. This is done by design for security reasons. However you can include it in your ConnectionString if you want to parameterize your connection manager. The format would be ProxyPassword=myProxyPassword; (make sure you have a semicolon as the last character). It can be anywhere in the ConnectionString.
