ACE and secureFTP

Unanswered Question

How do I go about configuring ACE for secure FTP. I have created FTP context and configured standard FTP using port 21, this is working. I would also like to include secure ftp on tcp port 990.

Currently my configuration is simple ACE is deployed in Bridge Mode. The FTP server gateway resides on the MSFC3.

Any guidance will be appreciated

Many Thanks

Do you want to loadbalance SFTP ?

Or just have it pass through ??

Loadbalancing SFTP is difficult because it starts as regular FTP and switches over to SSL which ACE can't do and fails to understand.

you don't need anything to have it passthrough.

As long as you don't ask ACE to inspect the traffic, and assuming this traffic is permitted in your access-group, then there is nothing to do to have it go through.
