This article describes how to continue to use plain FTP even when Require Secure Connection is enabled. This option in Serv-U does not allow the use of plain FTP in all communication on port 21.


Serv-U version 15.x


  1. Create a separate domain with the same IP and only put port 21 as the listener.
  2. Disable the Require secure connection option.
  3. Import the user list to the second domain.
