FTP port 21, it is not secure, isn't it?

4 posts in this topic

I'm going to use FTP function from AutoIT to send some files to server,

but as far as I can read, it send the credentials without encryption, isn't it?

With WinSCP, I can choose FTP with "TLS Explicit Encryption" with the same 21 port,

even I dont know how secure is that, but it will be better compare to no encryption at all.

So can we send the crendentials (and other data) securely using built-in FTP function in AutoIT without wrappers?

there is no built-in support for secure FTP. go to the "Example Scripts" forum and search for "SFTP", you'll find a good implementation here:

'?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>

this is using an external tool - PSFTP from the PuTTY package, so if you are not limited to AutoIt, you may want to use that tool directly.

Thanks, orbs :)

So I guess without external tools, it's not "supported" at this time?

'supported' by who? Microsoft? then no, they have not implemented SFTP into any DLL that AutoIt can make use of (as far as i know).

have a look at the link i provided, there are other suggestions mentioned. but the short answer is no, no 'supported' method.
