Using Secure FTP on ASP/Windows Hosting

In this article I will explain about secure FTP on ASP/Windows hosting.
1. We recommend using FileZilla to connect to your ftp account. If you don’t know how to install Filezilla please read this article.

image12. Using FTPS will require you to use port 990 instead of 21 when connecting to your FTP account. On Filezilla change the port before connecting.

3. In your ASP account, you can use the server’s hostname to connect using FileZilla via FTPS (FTP over explicit TLS) and then accepting the certificate popup when FileZilla notifies of it.

  1. Be sure to use ftps://servername for the hostname. Without ftps:// at the beginning, it does not resolve in FileZilla.
