    Default Passive Mode FTP

    It would be helpful to add passive mode ftp file transfers. We used to use port mode but switched to passive because of having to open ports on customers computers. Now about 95% of our customers use passive & only have to allow a firewall rule. The few that use port do so because of router issues. An option to select passive or port method would be really helpful.

    I would second that. Even my 8 year(or more) trusted website builder program has it.

    I would another second to this. The other thing that is even more important is encryption. Several of my customer deal with HIPAA and transferring files that are logged and secure is a huge issue.

    most applications that relay on ftp allow you to set at least port, and connection type (pasive / active)..

    also vote to have more options on the ftp settings to publish things on the server.

    Agreed, with HIPAA clients as well this is important

    What type of encryption would you like? DES? 3DES? AES(128, 192, 256bit)? Blowfish? IDEA? or something else?
