sFTP over explicit TLS


Is sFTP over explicit TLS still not possible in the current version of Lucee? I always get a connection timeout.

How do you do that?

Greetings, Allan

Are you able to connect to the file server via shell command in a terminal session? Are you on linux or windows?

I am on Windows and have tested with the FileZilla client whether I can reach the server. This worked without any problems. With cfftp it runs into a timeout.


I tried to get that working using so many different methods, but never could. I hope this comment leads to me seeing the solution when someone posts it.

I am quite able to connect via SFTP and have a nice script and table for that, and do SFTP quite regularly with Lucee, but TLS connections? Not able to.

Good luck!
