Subject:Using FTPS
Time:08:21 pm
It appears that Nativespace, the web hosting company I use, has as of yesterday warned everyone to use FTPS encryption, as in this security bulletin

http://blog.nativespace.co.uk/2013/01/23/important-ftp-security-information/

What I can't figure out is now to configure FireFTP to do this - anyone know? And able to explain it in words I will actually understand? Damned if I can figure it out...

Is FTPS the same as SFTP? How do I create a private key? And what do I do to stop someone logging in using old-style FTP, which still appears to work?

If FireFTP really isn't suitable for this, which FTP program should I be looking at? Preferably reasonably idiot-proof.

Later - never mind, I'm using Filezilla instead, seems to work.
