(FTPS here will refer to FTP over SSH)

1. I don't think you will get free FTPS components but hopefully somebody knows something I don't

2. To implement SFTP, as the other post says, you need a server that supports SSH. Using FTP over SSH is not a common practice, first you need SSH libraries, establish a connection to your server using SSH. After that you connect your FTP client to your local SSH port and send your commands

3. Indy does not provide any SSH libraries

SFTP, means secure file transfer protocol? Isn't it?
So, you may use Indy FTP with SSL to make it SFTP, and can be found on the post that I gave you.

FTPS and SFTP are both secure file transfer but they they are very different in how they work. Indy does not provide SSH binaries as I said earlier.

Thats alright, I was just trying to clarify the issue especially regarding the item in ID: 34181470

I do hope you find a free one, SSH stuff can be quite costly. I've searched for this before when I was developing an FTP server to support SSH, but I'll keep searching as well

Closing this out as there seems to be no free solution.

The other solution is to use ssl though ftp, and that makes sftp.

Thanks

SFTP is not FTP over SSH.  They are very different things.
