- One possibility is that you are trying to connect to the server with Implicit SSL, when the server requires an Explicit SSL connection. On the Address field, to the left hand side, next to the word "Address" you will see a icon with a drop down arrow, select "FTP Over SSL (Explicit)" from the drop down menu.
- Another possibility is that you need to upgrade to MSIE 5 or higher, which contains the domestic 128 bit encryption. The update can be obtained at the www.windowsupdate.com web site.
Once you have updated your Internet Explorer to version 5 or higher, you have to create a "self-signed" certificate:
From the menu of Tools > Settings -> "SSL"
- This can also occur when connecting to an incorrect port, or the server just does not support SSL.
