Topic: Certificate Authentication Help...

Hi All,

   Following is my scenario. I have a FTP Secured Server to authenticate as follows.

Protocol:     FTPS
URL:        test.test.com
Port:       21
User:       NNNNNNNN
Password:     PPPPPPPP
Secure Mode:    Explicit (Auth TLS + PROT P)
Client certificate:   KJHKJHKJ
Certificate pass phrase: sdlkjflks

A certificate file bank sent to us with .p12 extension.

So I need to authenticate through UserId & Password and also Certificate. By having the above scenario, Can I use "SecureFtp”?

I used the sample provided by Dart, when it logs in through UserId & Password, I believe that should fire the secureftp_authenticate event in order to select the certificate.

But secureftp_authenticate is not firing at all and in turn it rejects the connection.

Could someone provide some examples of how to authenticate userid & password by using certificate too.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

The Authenticate event is used to validate a certificate from the remote host. The Certificate event fires when the remote host is requesting a certificate and the Certificate property is not set to a valid Certificate Object.

There are examples of their use in the help documentation, and the sample demonstrates their use as well.

Hi Nick,

Is there a way I can send you a couple of screenshots, just to show that what I see in the run window. Actually what I see in the run window is the dropdown menus being opened and options being selected, as if running a different system inside the run window. This way I do not see the raw data in the window and which is why I wont be able to select it using the cursor. Please let me know if you have an email id where I can send the screenshots so you can relate it to the raw log I have been sending you.
