I want the setup/configuration details for conversion from FTP to FTPS in WebMethods.

I need all the requirements and configuration details on conversion from FTP to FTPS in WebMethods Integration Server Tool. Appreciate your quick help. Thanks in advance.

Hi Rachana,

converting from FTP to FTPS is just a change in the port number and setting a flag on the pb.client.ftp:login service to indicate that this is a secure connection.

Please note that FTPS and SFTP are different techologies:
FTPS - FTP over SSL
SFTP - FTP over SSH

Regards,
Holger

Is FTP over SSL support ed bywebmethod 9.5 version?
The below link says that FTPS is directly not supported by WebMethods. Just to inform you that we have already set up 990 port on both Source and Target servers, but unable to connect using WebMethods.

Integration Server does not support , Implicit FTPS . It supports explicit FTPS.

You can also refer to the below empower ticket which explains why Implicit FTPS is not supported
