tariqahsan has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:


I was wondering if Net::FtpServer module would be something
equivalent to unix's 'ftps' command?

Some code snippet to do secure ftp would be much appreciated.

    Net::FTPSSL is a module implementing ftps, that is FTP over SSL. Net::SFTP implements sftp, that is FTP over SSH.

    I haven't used either one myself, but they seem reasonably likely to work. :)

      Clarification (or nitpick :-) : sftp is not FTP over SSH but a new (albeit similar to FTP) protocol.
