There are three different types of FTP servers and FTP connections:
- Standard non-encrypted FTP servers: SyncBackPro, SyncBackSE, SyncBackLite and SyncBackFree can use basic FTP servers.
- FTPS servers: SyncBackPro and SyncBackSE support implicit and explicit connections to FTPS servers. They also support advanced features such as MODE Z, UTF8, and MLST.
- SFTP servers: Only SyncBackPro can use SFTP servers.
An alternative to using FTP, with SyncBackPro and SyncBackSE, is to use SyncBack Touch.
