Is the FlashFXP team committed to adding SSL support?

Thanks

We are doing everything we possibly can. The problem is the limited resources available for delphi pertaining to SSL. Again, if you have ANY suggestions, please let them be known

Please, to add to linksters comment, read the other posts in this thread to work out what bigstar needs to implement it. Thanks.

IP*Works isn't free and it *might* not work with the current design of FlashFXP. Although supporting SSL by any method is a long shot.

The IP*Works trial won't work because I have no way of directly tying it into my own socket library.

Well... it looks like SmartFTP beat Flash to the punch.. it now has SSL with FXP support (clear data channel) in their 1.966.6 version.

hmmm they beat us? There was never a race or a rush to support ssl, atlest not by me. I still have my doubts about even providing ssl support.

FlashFXP is simply the best FXP client and many of us desparately need SSL support as many resources have begun to require it.

Maybe you could make a FlashFXP with SSL a higher price, and a small fee to upgrade from existing licenses? Could this cover your cost of development and licensing Delphi SSL code?

Thanks

Obviously some people want the SSL support, how ever I cannot agree with different priced versions of FFXP... Should be 1 version & 1 version only in my opinion...

My two cents

Dont want to be hippocritical (or however its spelt) ... but lets keep this post to what it was intended, to attempt to assist bigstar with what he needs to implement, or attempt to implement the SSL ...

bigstar, did I get your earlier post right or are you not really sure if you support SSL/TLS in general ? As if that is the case I don't expect to see an implementation soon and rather switch to another product instead of waiting for you to say 'flashfxp will not support it because I dont see it as an urgent new feature to implement.'
I can for sure understand your technical issues here looking for a good delphi module. But hey, if you want it to stay a state of the art ftp/fxp client you might want to think about getting help from someone who does understand C . I think many of us have made it clear that SSL/TLS community is gowing rapidly.

Just my 2 cents! Keep up the good work!

Default Fast SSL solution

everyone knows that OpenSSL is free and it's written in C/C++ , maybe it's possible to use C++ to program a SSL client side tunnel and build an active-x , and then you can operate it in any kind of programming language such as delphi and You probably don't need to change your ftp code at all
