To enable transparent FTP tunneling and FTP-SFTP conversion, you need to complete the following tasks:
Configure the Tectia SOCKS Proxy to listen on port 1080 on the client host and
define the filter rules in the
configuration file. See Configuring SOCKS Proxy.
Create a user, for example,
SSHSP, for running the
SOCKS Proxy. See Creating the
ssh-socks-proxy process. See
Running SOCKS Proxy.
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.
