I think SmartFTP does not support AES, and so that is the problem why I can't connect to that server. At least that's what I have been told.

Here is the error and my version:

Error:
AUTH TLS
234 AUTH TLS successful
Connected. Exchanging encryption keys...
SSL Error
Das Token, das der Funktion

SmartFTP is using the Microsoft schannel library for SSL/TLS. The AES cipher suite is currently not available in the schannel implementation.

See the newsgroup thread at:

Does that mean you won't fix/add it? You will wait for M$ to add it?
Why not using OpenSSL?

Shame. I have same sitsuation. AES is future and my server supports it with OpenSSL libraries. You should change to use OpenSSL libraries in SmartFTP 2.0 Client, mb.

Hello ..

There is not much higher security by using AES. Why does your server not support 3DES for example?

We have no plans to use OpenSSL at this time.
