Pinned topic Using Connect:Direct FTP+ with Tectia

‏2013-02-26T20:52:33Z |
Hello there. Currently in our system we have external customers that send data to our servers via SFTP using Tectia. We're looking at replacing all our FTP implementations with C:D. Is there a way to have C:D FTP+ on the server that the external customer connects to using Tectia? We obviously can't force the external customer to use C:D.

Also, is there any online documentation of using FTP+ with C:D servers? We have remote sites that very rarely will be sent data and are looking at using a light-weight FTP option of sending data to them instead of having to put C:D Server on both our local and the remote nodes. I'd like to get a better understanding of how this is done.

Thanks!
Jason

    In very simple words, C:D FTP+ is a client that accepts FTP command syntax, but transfers files using the Connect:Direct protocol.
    So, it looks like FTP, but it is C:D under the hood. Secure connections using SSL/TLS are supported, too.

    Your external customers would need to use a C:D FTP+ client. Command line and GUI clients are available.

    On your side, you need a Connect:Direct server with an C:D FTP+ plug-in installed.

    C:D FTP+ Documentation can be found at http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27023714. Maybe the User Guide is a good starting point.
