FTP over SSL query

Hi

If using FTPS (i.e. FTP with SSL), do we have to enter

sftp://thesite.com

on the FTP client, instead of

ftp://thesite.com

in the same way that HTTPS needs an https:// prefix?

Which browser?  Most do not support SSL'ed FTP.

SSL'ed FTP is typically called ftps, sftp is normally used to refer to SSH  FTP, which is not really ftp and no browser I am aware of support SSH FTP.

I have never used that FTP client.  However with most ftp clients you do not enter a URL, you define "host" and in the host definition you define what type of FTP server (SSH, SSL, or "default") the remote host is.
