Tectia

Summary of Configuration Steps

To enable transparent FTP tunneling and FTP-SFTP conversion, you need to complete the following tasks:

  1. Configure the Tectia SOCKS Proxy to listen on port 1080 on the client host and define the filter rules in the ssh-socks-proxy-config.xml configuration file. See Configuring SOCKS Proxy.

  2. Create a user, for example, SSHSP, for running the SOCKS Proxy. See Creating the SSHSP User.

  3. Start the ssh-socks-proxy process. See Running SOCKS Proxy.

  4. Configure the SOCKS settings for the FTP client. See Configuring FTP.

After these tasks are completed, the specified FTP connections will be automatically tunneled or converted to SFTP, transparently to the user.
