How to FTP securely without SFTP or SSH access (2 posts)

Hi! I'm new to Fetch and love it!
I have a question I hope you guys can help me with...
When I tried to upload using STFP, I got an error message. I contacted my web host admin and he said that SFTP doesn't work because SSH is not enabled. They do not allow SSH or Telnet access for security purposes. They use Red Hat Linux OS.
So.. I tried using the "FTP with KClient" and then "FTP with GSSAPI" options. I got an error saying that the FTP server does not support security extensions.
Is there some info I could pass on to my web host to get this to work without compromising the security on the server?
Thanks in advance for any assistance.

You should ask the server admin if they suport any secure protocols for transferring files to the server, such as FTP with SSL, S/Key, or One-Time Password support. Fetch supports S/Key and One-Time Password security. Fetch does not support FTP with SSL at this time, but there are some other FTP clients that do.
Otherwise, you should just use plain FTP, or switch to a web host that supports secure connections.
Thanks, and let us know if you have any other questions.
