Disabling SSL

The default installation of Ipswitch WS_FTP Server allows SSL enabled (Explicit SSL) and Implicit SSL connections. If you do not want to allow SSL connections, you must make changes to the default configuration.

To turn off SSL for a listener:

  1. From the top menu, select Server > Listeners. The Listeners page opens.
  2. Click the IP address of the listener you want to open. The Edit Listener page opens.

    Note: Since SSL can be configured only on FTP listeners, make sure that you select a listener that displays FTP in the Server type column.

  3. Under Encryption Options, click Edit SSL Settings. The Listener Encryption Settings page opens.
  4. Change SSL type to Clear Only, then click Save.
