Default 'PROT C' command

"SSL for data channel can be turned off by 'PROT C' command (supported by CuteFTP Pro v2) so FXP can be possible"

quote from Raiden FTPD:s msg board ...

Will this be supported by flashfxp too ?

that doesn't apply to FlashFXP becuase it doesn't handle SSL connections (yet?)

this maybe useful for flashfxp

when connecting to a real ssl ftp server such as GSFTPS , it's impossible for flashfxp to connecto to it in SSL for both command and data connections , unless the server is running non-ssl mode and you prepare for a SSL server bouncer that wraps both command/data connections into SSL .

but with this PROT C command , you can use any single TCP connection proxy/bouncer with SSL to connect to the GSFTPS , and then immediatelly sends a PROT C command and then just use non-ssl mode for data connections

hmmm, I thought the whole idea behind ssl was to protect the data?

protecting the data is nice but there are some disadvantages

... transfer speed is slow (with SSL)
... transfer data size grows
... can not fxp ( unless other server is an implict ssl server as well)

so since the password / commands are protected , sometimes it's nice to transfer data in clear channel the data is not important at all .
