FTPS and SSLVLDCRT=N

Hi there..

I have a lot of SFTP and some FTP jobs running with no issues. I've received my first request to setup a FTPS job. My problem is in the agent.ini for all UNIX boxes and Window boxes I have the line SSLVLDCRT=N  Will I need SSLVLDCRT=Y to run this job? If I do that I'll have issues with my other SFTP.

Thanks for any info on this.  I did look over Devns pdf on 3.0 Agents and the UNIX SSL doc, but not sure I get it.

Here we are running Tidal 5.3.1.324

Unix Agents 3.0.1.06

Windows Agents 3.0.1.28 and 3.0.1.18 and 3.0.1.13

Informatica Solution Connector 1.61

Informatica Adapter 1.15

SAP Adapter 5.0.1.9

MS_SQL Adapter 1.1.0.16

Business Objects Adapter 1.48a

FTPS and SSLVLDCRT=N

I've never liked the SSLVLDCRT=N option as it defeats one of the key reasons to use ftps.  You can run FTPS jobs with

SSLVLDCRT=N, however you are disabling the certificate validation.  This leaves you more susceptible to man-in-the-middle and spoofing attacks.
