There are three different types of FTP servers and FTP connections:

  1. Standard non-encrypted FTP servers: SyncBackPro, SyncBackSE and SyncBackFree can use basic FTP servers.
  2. 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.
  3. SFTP servers: Only SyncBackPro can use SFTP servers.

An alternative to using FTP, with SyncBackPro and SyncBackSE, is to use SyncBack Touch.
