    When will Fetch be able to access an FTP server using SSL Implicit encryption? Please reply to kenny_vick@playstation.sony.com.

    Thanks,

    That's a feature we'd like to support, but we don't have a planned date.

    The above messages were posted about 2 years ago. Any news/progress on FTPS support since then? It would be useful here at UC Berkeley (our MVS system supports FTPS but not SFTP).

    Thanks!

    No, there's no news to report, except that we've finished a number of things that were ahead of SSL on the priority list, so it's closer to the top now.

    Thanks,

    Ian Crew at UC Berkeley has developed a package which bundles Fetch with TLSWrap and some custom scripting to allow Fetch to connect to FTPS (FTP-over-SSL) servers. It is available for downloading from:

    http://software.berkeley.edu/mac/connect-to-ftps/current/index.html

    FTPS is distinct from SFTP, an FTP-like file transfer protocol based on SSH which is already supported by Fetch. Fetch, at least through version 5.1, doesn't yet support FTPS. This package is essentially an "FTPS wrapper" for Fetch.

    (Jim Matthews already knows about this, but I didn't see anything here in the Fetch Message Board which mentioned it.)
