29.5 Expert Settings

A FTP server can run in active or in passive mode. By default the server runs in passive mode. To switch into the active mode, just uncheck Enable Passive Mode option in Expert Settings dialog. You can also change the range of ports on the server used for the data stream by tweaking the Min Port for Pas. Mode and Max Port for Pas. Mode options.

If you want encrypted communication between clients and the server, you can use the FTPS protocol (FTP/SSH). However note that FTPS is different from the much more common SFTP (SSH File Transport Protocol) protocol. If you want to use the FTPS, you can set SSL options in the Expert Settings dialog.

If your system is protected by a firewall, check Open Port in Firewall to enable a connection to the FTP server.
