I use proftpd-mysql on Debian 4.0 ETCH, and I also use smartftp. For some time now, I have not been able to figure out how to get ssl over ftp to work... and it is pissing me off too.
I read that smartftp uses a different protocol, and it may not work properly. in that same article, i read that there was a free ftp client called winSCP which i have been using, and still, no ssl over ftp.
When I try to connect, it wants to use port 22, which is my SSH port. If that is the case, to use FTP over SSH (which does work), is that actually correct? i dont have SFTP set up on my new server, but when i try to connect, it will accept my username and password that I use for SSH, but not any FTP users...
Should I change my SSH port to something else? if i set up SFTP it is TLS authentication, is it not?
I may be wrong, but hey... I am at least making another question that may end up getting the right answer eventually
