I've been trying to use links like this: ftpes:// with SmartFTP 4.0.1204.0. SmartFTP doesn't recognize the ftpes:// url, though it does work with ftps://.

What I'd like to see is for SmartFTP to detect the ftpes protocol in the URL and automatically switch to "FTPS (Explicit)". Based on how it works now, if you made ftpes:// an alias for ftps://, everything would work exactly how I am hoping.

Do you have a reference to a RFC or draft that covers the ftpes scheme? ftps is the more logical scheme because the only way to do secure FTP as defined in http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4217 is with the explicit mode. The implicit mode is an early unofficial method.
