Using any FTP client (I'm on Ubuntu 12.04 and tried using
lftp), I want to be able to make an implicit TLS connection to a FTP server, but I can't quite manage to successfully connect. All I am getting is:
'ls' at 0 [Delaying before reconnect 29]
For implicit TLS / SSL using
lftp please do these commands:
Note that this will connect you to port 990 directly using TLS.
For explicit TLS / SSL:
set ftp:ssl-force true connect ftp://ftp.domain.tld
...which will connect you to port 21 with plain-text initially but then will explicitly switch you to TLS using FTP protocol
You can add
-d parameter to
connect -d ftp://ftp.domain.tld) to enable debug output to ensure that you are connecting using the method you want.
lftp v. 4.8.4.
