Module FTP/S Client
The File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a widely used standard for transferring data between servers and clients on networks. Enabled by the TCP/IP protocol, FTP forms the basis for file exchange in numerous applications and environments. Data can flow in both directions: From client to server and vice versa. While many protocols, such as SFTP, use a single connection for data transfer, FTP uses multiple connections to transfer commands and data independently. This offers the advantage that additional commands can be sent and executed during the data transfer.
Due to the use of multiple channels for data transmission, more complex adjustments to the company network are generally necessary if data is to be transmitted via FTP over the Internet. Thanks to support for FTPS, an extension of FTP to include encryption of command and data channels via TLS, FTP can also be used securely over the Internet, but is often only used in internal networks due to the more complex network configuration.
The !MC5 Module FTP/S Client provides a reliable, easy-to-configure FTP client that is fully integrated into the EDI processing and supports both unencrypted FTP and FTPS connections encrypted via TLS 1.0 to 1.3. This FTP client allows users to easily and quickly connect to other FTP servers, send and receive data. Fully integrated with EDI processing, !MC5's FTP client provides a seamless and efficient solution for data exchange in complex network environments.
