Re: [gftp] SSL - SSH - How?
There is no GUI (or any other input) for tlswrap. tlswrap runs
silently. After it is started, which you did correctly, *then* you
start gftp. You can start tlswrap manually each time you reboot, or put
it in your .profile or start-up script to be executed automatically.
Under tlswrap, you use 127.0.0.1 on port 7000 for the HOST, and for the
USER you prepend your ID@ to the front of the destination (where ID
is your actual user ID), and append ":21" to the end of the
destination. For example, I enter
in the USER field. Do NOT use worldnet.upload.att.net or
You can put your password in the PASS box, or get prompted for it later
with a popup box. You'll see the PASS command echoed and after a short
pause you get logged in.
