Lamella FTP access now requires FTPS for improved security

FTPS is a secure form of FTP which encrypts login details and files as they are transferred from your computer to BioHPC. As part of recent upgrades to the lamella storage gateway, plain FTP transfers are now disabled and connections must be made using FTPS.

If you are using the FileZilla client, please enter ftpes://lamella.biohpc.swmed.edu in the Host box when connecting. You will be prompted to accept an encryption certificate the first time you connect.

    Hi Mark - yes, ftps is a rather confusing standard. There is implicit ftps, and explicit ftps. Different clients handle it in different ways. FileZilla wants ftpes for explicit connections, but other clients may be happy with ftps, or even ftp (they will try different approaches from most to least secure). The implicit standard is deprecated.
