Does your component support both explicit and implicit SSL?
Posted by Van Glass on 27 March 2007 12:31 AM
Yes. Both implicit and explicit SSL connections are supported in JSCAPE components.

For an explicit SSL connection the user first connects to the FTP server in plain-text mode, usually on port 21. Prior to sending authentication details the user sends the AUTH TLS or AUTH SSL command to ask the FTP server to switch to a secured connection. If the server supports explicit SSL, it then switches the command channel to a secure channel and let's the user know that it is ok to send authentication credentials.

For an implicit SSL connection the user connects to the FTP server in secure mode, usually on port 990. Unlike explicit SSL, implicit SSL does not require that the user first instruct the server to switch to a secure channel.
