When distributing an application using Rebex FTP library, simply copy the following DLL files (.NET assemblies) with your application:
There is no need to install, configure or distribute anything else to make them work.
Recommended and tested FTP servers:
- Microsoft FTP publishing service (IIS 6, IIS 7, IIS 7.5, IIS 8)
- GlobalSCAPE EFT Server
- FileZilla server
Also works with:
- BlackMoon FTP Server
- Gene6 FTP Server
- Bullet Proof
- Serv-U FTP Server (by Rhino Software)
- War Ftp
- WS_FTP Server (by Ipswitch)
- Ocean FTP Server (1.02 and higher) (by Code Ocean)
- Raiden FTPD
- all standard-compliant FTP servers
Workarounds for some server issues are not enabled by default because detecting them automatically would be troublesome.
They can be enabled by setting the following properties of
|DoNotSendSignals||The default behavior of Rebex FTP/SSL is to send IP and Synch signals before aborting the download using the ABOR command, unless a proxy is in use.
Setting this flag will disable sending of IP and Synch signals even through non-proxied FTP sessions. You might want to try disabling it if you experience problems while aborting data transfers.
|DoNotSendAbort||This flag will cause the component not to send ABOR command while aborting a download. The download will be aborted by closing the receiving socket.|
|EnableImproperDataCloseWorkaround||Some firewalls and some versions of ActiveSync were observed not to close data connections properly, causing '426' server errors. This option enables a workaround for this.|
|KeepAliveDuringTransfer||Send NOOP command during file transfers every 10 minutes.
This is only needed if the FTP control connection is otherwise being dropped by a buggy router or firewall while a very long data transfer is in progress.
The NOOP command can be alternatively sent explicitly using the
|PauseBeforeUploadClose||Performs a small pause before closing the encrypted upload connection when the transfer is finished.
Used as a workaround for servers that are unable to correctly handle the last block data if it is followed by a TLS CloseNotify message in the same TCP block.
|SslDoNotInsertEmptyFragment||Do not send empty record after successful handshake with CBC ciphers.|
This is in violation of the RFC, but some broken servers need it, unfortunately.
|SkipRollbackDetection||Ignore the client version in premaster secret. This only affects server sockets.|
