FTP Firewall Settings, Active vs. Passive, and FTPS Explicit vs. Implicit-Week 47

You can find this week’s video here.

Have you ever wondered what FTP Active mode or Passive mode means? Do you have a good understanding of the FTP data channel or control channel? It can be difficult to fully understand FTP, which firewall ports to enable, and how to navigate the two communication channels. This lesson will hopefully clear up these questions and more.

This week’s video lesson takes a deep dive into FTP Active vs. Passive modes. As part of this you’ll get a chance to see the various modes in action, see what the traffic looks like in Wireshark, see exact firewall rules, learn about stateful FTP, find out about Explicit FTPS and Implicit FTPS, and learn about the FTP data channel and control channels.

  • Week 1: IIS FTP Basics
  • Week 2: IIS FTP and IIS Manager Users
  • Week 3: IIS FTP and User Isolation
