FTP Server Encryption
Posted on 2009-04-23
I have a few basic questions about setting up a new FTP server.
I hope to get a server like ipswitch FTP server, gene6 or titanftp as these are encrypted. Does this mean that when a user connects to my FTP server (even with a basic ftp client), that their username/password, uploads and downloads are encrypted?
do the clients need any encryption software on their end?
Another question regarding disaster recovery -
I'm looking to back up this data to another site - what would be the best way of doing this? would it be to replicate the data in realtime as I'd like our FTP server to be available 24/7 even if our network on our primary site went down..
Thanks in advance,
