Top Forums Shell Programming and Scripting How to connect to FTP server which requires SSL authentication? Post 302569399 by cero on Monday 31st of October 2011 07:27:48 AM

Did you get information about the used protocol when you got username and password?
I'd try the easiest method first. Issue AUTH SSL before sending username and password in an normal ftp-session.
I never had to use FTP over SSH - its basically tunneling normal FTP over an ssh-connection.
For FTPS you need a client that can handle that protocol like lftp. Opening a connection with lftp could look like this:
lftp -c 'open -e "set ftps:initial-prot ""; \
   set ftp:ssl-force true; \
   set ftp:ssl-protect-data true; "\
   <your FTP command>; " \
   ftps://HOSTNAME:990 '
