Set up a site to use SSL in FTP Voyager

Updated April 26, 2017

Overview

This article explains how to set up a site to use SSL in FTP Voyager.

Environment

All FTP Voyager versions

Steps

FTP Voyager Secure Edition supports the use of FTPS and SFTP for secure connections to servers. Using FTPS or SFTP provides a fully-encrypted session that hides the user name, password and critical data while in transit. 

  1. Open FTP Voyager and start the Site Profile Manager by clicking the Site Profiles button in the Browser ribbon that displays automatically. 
  2. Select the site profile to configure.
  3. Click the Connection Type menu under Site Information.
  4. Select the secure connection mode you want to use. You can get this information from your server administrator.

After the SSL settings are added, FTP Voyager assumes that the server associated with this site profile is FTPS or SFTP-enabled. If it is not, any attempts to connect will fail until either the server is configured to allow secure connections, or you connect again using standard FTP. If the SSL connection is established, extra status messages will be displayed to confirm that SSL mode has been activated.

FTP Voyager 15.2.0.19 and earlier

  1. Open FTP Voyager and start the Site Profile Manager using the Connect button.
  2. Select the Site Profile to configure.
  3. Click the Advanced button.
  4. In the left tree, select Security.
  5. Select the secure connection mode you want to use. You can get this information from your server administrator.
