Just downloaded the new version, and I'm impressed.

I have one question, I am configuring a new FTP server. It supports implicit SSL and auth ssl. How do I turn this on in Auto FTP Manager? What is the difference?

Explicit SSL is also known as Auth SSL or Auth TLS. With explicit SSL, the default FTP server port is used, normally port 21. Both SSL and non-SSL connections can be made on this port. Auto FTP Manager will send a command to the FTP server to start the SSL connection.

With Implicit SSL, the security is always on. A dedicated port, usually port 990, is used for secure connections.

If you are installing a new FTP server, you can use either implicit or explicit SSL. If you choose implicit, you will need to assign a separate port number. Auto FTP Manager will auto-detect whether explicit SSL or implicit SSL is used on your FTP server.
