FTP&TFTP

Hi All, 

 

we have a customer that has read the following document:

 

http://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/ArubaOS_60/UserGuide/Firewall_Port_Info.php

 

Specifically

 

  • FTP (TCP port 21).

  • TFTP (UDP port 69)

     

they have said that their security policy does not allow them to use protocols with plaintext auth.

 

he has asked if its possible to use encrypted FTP or SCP

 

could anyone explain what is FTP needed for?

 

Kind Regards

 

Adam

Re: FTP&TFTP

Access points download their firmware (operating system) using these protocols.
