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
ssh-socks-proxy-config.xmlconfiguration file. See Configuring the SOCKS Proxy.
Create a user, for example,
SSHSP, for running the SOCKS Proxy. See Creating the
ssh-socks-proxyprocess. See Running the 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.
