I setup the AUTH mode for SSL, but it connects with TLS anyway.

Can someone help me with this?

Hello ..

The "AUTH" mode setting is being ignored.

For most servers it doesn't matter whether AUTH SSL or AUTH TLS is sent. In most cases TLS is used anyway. AUTH SSL is deprecated.

It looks like the server that I'm trying to use requires SSL.

TLS doesn't appear to work and neither does FTP.

I tried connecting using FTP and I get this message.

[08:09:05] 220-This system is for Authorized Users Only.
[08:09:05] 220-
[08:09:05] 220 FTP server (SecureTransport 4.5) ready.
[08:09:05] USER jeffld
[08:09:05] 530 SSL is mandatory.

If I try another FTP client that supports SSL, it connects and operates successfully.

It appears that I may need backward compatability for SSL. I'll just use another solution for this particular server.

Please post the complete log with AUTH TLS and the error you get. I can't find any problems in the first log yo posted.
