Hi,
My program written in C-sharp, needs to access FTP and get files. BUT i want to send the password encrypted while sending request to access FTP, so it doesn't appear as plain-text over the network. But for authentication to FTP requires a plain password, not in encrypted form.

Can anyone plase help me with any idea with the programming logical steps to implement accessing FTP using encrypted Password?

Hi,

How to programmatically using C# or vb change/reset FTP password ?

1 solution

There's no way to do this with standard FTP, but you may be able to use FTPS - assuming that the site you are trying to connect to supports it. Basically, you can think of FTPs as being the FTP equivalent of HTTPS; in other words it uses SSL for file transfer.

There's a demonstration of doing this here[^] on Code Project.

You can find more information about FTPS here[^].

Don't scattergun the same request all over the site: you have a question in QA, leave it at that.
All you will do is duplicate work, and annoy those you want help from ...
