Overview

This article shows you how to set up Serv-U to allow for SSL-encrypted connections. Serv-U supports self-signed certificates created directly, or third-party certificates from Certificate Authorities such as Verisign, Thawte, Geotrust and RapidSSL. Using SSL, Serv-U supports FTPS (FTP secured over SSL) in Serv-U FTP Server and Serv-U MFT Server, and HTTPS (HTTP secured over SSL) in Serv-U MFT Server only.

Environment

All versions of Serv-U

Steps

  1. Navigate to the Domain Details | Listeners menu and see if the FTPS or HTTPS listener is entered. If not, add the appropriate listener.
  2. Go to Limits & Settings | Create and provide the SSL and SSH.
  3. Provide the details requested in the SSL Certificate menu.
    1. The Certificate Path is your .crt certificate file.
    2. The Private Key Path is your .key private key file.
    3. The Password is the series of characters you selected to protect your private key.
    4. If you have Serv-U MFT Server the CA (Certificate Authority) Certificate Path allows you to specify a .pem file for the Intermediate Certificate if required by your CA.

  4.  Click Save.
