Multi-protocol gateway

by support2 » Mon Jan 16, 2012 12:43 pm

CompleteFTP 6.2.0 has been released recently, and contains an exciting new feature in the Enterprise Edition called the multi-protocol gateway.

Basically, CompleteFTP can act as a gateway to other servers. It can present any of its own protocols to a client, and translate them into a different protocol to talk to another server. The client will be unaware it is communicating with this other server.

This is an extremely powerful feature. For example, you can use the gateway to:

1. Provide secure access to another non-secure FTP server located on the same machine or network. CompleteFTP provides a secure wrapper to the secure server. This means SFTP or FTPS clients can connect to CompleteFTP, which proxies the requests on to the non-secure server.

2. Add FTP or FTPS support to an existing SFTP server. This means FTP or FTPS clients can access the SFTP server without any other changes than setting up CompleteFTP to proxy the requests.

3. Add SFTP support to an existing FTP or FTPS server. This means SFTP clients can access the FTP or FTPS server without any other changes than setting up CompleteFTP to proxy the requests.

The remote server can be used simply as a remotely mounted filesystem, but it can also be used to authenticate users logging into CompleteFTP.

You can download a trial from - make sure you choose the Enterprise Edition when you install.
