The FTPClient component provides client-side functionality for FTP and FTPS protocols.

Syntax

TsbxFTPClient

Remarks

FTPClient provides client-side support for the FTP (File Transfer Protocol) and FTPS (FTP-over-SSL) protocols. The FTPS protocol allows you to securely perform file transfer operations with a remote server over Transport Layer Security (TLS).

Note: TLS is a successor to the now deprecated SSL protocol, although the latter abbreviation is still widely used.

FTPClient is typically used in the following scenario:

  • Setting up the connection parameters
  • Connecting to the server and signing in
  • Performing file transfer operations
  • Closing the connection

Setting up the parameters

When working with FTP or FTP-over-TLS service you will often need to tune up several classes of settings:
  • Login credentials: these can be tuned up via the Username and Password properties.
  • TLS settings: these includes the TLS mode: explicit, implicit, or no TLS. You must get this setting right; otherwise you may not be able to connect. Use TLSSettings property to adjust this setting.
  • If your server requires you to authenticate with a certificate, you can provide one via the ClientChain property.
  • FTPClient validates the server certificate against the local security settings. If your server uses a custom or non-public PKI, you may need to provide the required trust anchors and CA certificates via the TrustedCertificates and KnownCertificates collections.
  • FTP protocol includes its own set of settings, such as PassiveMode, EncryptDataChannel, or AdjustPasvAddress. These may be configured on this stage, or later into the connection.
  • In some network environments, you may also need to make adjustments to SocketSettings and Proxy.

Connecting to the server and signing in

Call Connect to open the connection to the server. The component will use the provided credentials to sign you in automatically.

Performing file transfer operations

FTPClient offers the full set of FTP operations. These include file uploads (UploadFile or UploadBytes), file downloads (DownloadFile, DownloadBytes), and directory operations (ListDir, MakeDir).

Note that unlike SFTP, FTP only supports one transfer operation at a time. An ongoing operation should be completed or aborted before a new one can be started.

Closing the connection

Use Disconnect to close the FTP connection.

Useful info

During its work FTPClient communicates back via events. Progress event fires periodically during the transfer operation to let you know of the operation progress. ControlSend and ControlReceive report the protocol communication log. FileOperation and FileOperationResult report the start and completion of an individual transfer operation within a multi-file transfer call (such as UploadFiles).

AccountInfo Property (FTPClient Component)

Parameters for the ACCT command.

Syntax

property AccountInfo: String read get_AccountInfo write set_AccountInfo;

Default Value

''

Remarks

Specifies the parameter for ACCT command. If AccountInfo is set, the client automatically sends ACCT command to the server during authentication.

AdjustPasvAddress Property (FTPClient Component)

Enables or disables automatic adjustment of passive-mode addresses.

Syntax

property AdjustPasvAddress: Boolean read get_AdjustPasvAddress write set_AdjustPasvAddress;

Default Value

true

Remarks

Occasional NAT'ed servers misbehave by returning local IP addresses in their PASV mode offers, which are not reachable from the outer network. Set this property to true to make the component enforce data connections to the same address as the control connection uses.

Note that sometimes (typically, with multi-faced FTP services aka FTP Clouds) you may need to disable this property to make the transfers work right.

BlockedCertificates Property (FTPClient Component)

The certificates that must be rejected as trust anchors.

Syntax

property BlockedCertificates: TsbxCertificateList read get_BlockedCertificates write set_BlockedCertificates;

Remarks

Use this property to provide a list of compromised or blocked certificates. Any chain containing a blocked certificate will fail validation.

This property is not available at design time.

ClientChain Property (FTPClient Component)

The TLS client certificate chain.

Syntax

property ClientChain: TsbxCertificateList read get_ClientChain write set_ClientChain;

Remarks

Assign a certificate chain to this property to enable TLS client authentication in the component. Note that the client's end-entity certificate should have a private key associated with it.

Use CertificateStorage or CertificateManager components to import the certificate from a file, system store, or PKCS11 device.

This property is not available at design time.

Connected Property (FTPClient Component)

Indicates whether the component is connected to the server.

Syntax

property Connected: Boolean read get_Connected;

ExternalCrypto Property (FTPClient Component)

Provides access to external signing and DC parameters.

Syntax

property ExternalCrypto: TsbxExternalCrypto read get_ExternalCrypto;

Remarks

Use this property to tune-up remote cryptography settings. SecureBlackbox supports two independent types of external cryptography: synchronous (based on OnExternalSign event) and asynchronous (based on DC protocol and DCAuth signing component).

This property is read-only.

FIPSMode Property (FTPClient Component)

Reserved.

Syntax

property FIPSMode: Boolean read get_FIPSMode write set_FIPSMode;

Default Value

false

Remarks

This property is reserved for future use.

KnownCertificates Property (FTPClient Component)

Additional certificates for chain validation.

Syntax

property KnownCertificates: TsbxCertificateList read get_KnownCertificates write set_KnownCertificates;

Remarks

Use this property to supply a list of additional certificates that might be needed for chain validation. An example of a scenario where you might want to do that is when intermediary CA certificates are absent from the standard system locations (or when there are no standard system locations), and therefore should be supplied to the component manually.

The purpose of certificates to be added to this collection is roughly equivalent to that of Intermediate Certification Authorities system store in Windows.

Do not add trust anchors or root certificates to this collection: add them to TrustedCertificates instead.

This property is not available at design time.

KnownCRLs Property (FTPClient Component)

Additional CRLs for chain validation.

Syntax

property KnownCRLs: TsbxCRLList read get_KnownCRLs write set_KnownCRLs;

Remarks

This property is not available at design time.

ModeZ Property (FTPClient Component)

Switches on data compression.

Syntax

property ModeZ: Boolean read get_ModeZ write set_ModeZ;

Default Value

true

Remarks

Switches the in-flight data compression on/off.

PassiveMode Property (FTPClient Component)

Enables or disables passive transfer mode.

Syntax

property PassiveMode: Boolean read get_PassiveMode write set_PassiveMode;

Default Value

true

Remarks

The transfer mode (active or passive) regulates which party is responsible for opening a listening port for data connections. Where passive mode is used, the FTP server is responsible for listening for data connections. In active mode, the listening port is opened by the client.

In today's Internet of firewalls it is a de-facto standard to use the passive mode for FTP transfers.

Password Property (FTPClient Component)

The connecting user's authentication password.

Syntax

property Password: String read get_Password write set_Password;

Default Value

''

Remarks

Assign the user's authentication password to this property. Use Username for username/login.

Syntax

property RestartAt: Int64 read get_RestartAt write set_RestartAt;

Default Value

-1

Remarks

If non-zero, tells the component to restart the file transfer operation at the specified position, rather than transfer the file in full.

ServerChain Property (FTPClient Component)

The TLS server's certificate chain.

Syntax

property ServerChain: TsbxCertificateList read get_ServerChain;

Remarks

Use this property to access the certificate chain sent by the TLS server. This property is ready to read when OnCertificateValidate event is fired by the client component.

Sets the file transfer mode.

Syntax

property TransferType: TsbxFTPTransferTypes read get_TransferType write set_TransferType;
TsbxFTPTransferTypes = ( cttText, cttBinary );

Default Value

cttBinary

Remarks

Use this property to switch between binary and text transfer modes.

cttText0
cttBinary1

TrustedCertificates Property (FTPClient Component)

A list of trusted certificates for chain validation.

Syntax

property TrustedCertificates: TsbxCertificateList read get_TrustedCertificates write set_TrustedCertificates;

Remarks

Use this property to supply a list of trusted certificates that might be needed for chain validation. An example of a scenario where you might want to do that is when root CA certificates are absent from the standard system locations (or when there are no standard system locations), and therefore should be supplied to the component manually.

The purpose of this certificate collection is largely the same than that of Windows Trusted Root Certification Authorities system store.

Use this property with extreme care as it directly affects chain verifiability; a wrong certificate added to the trusted list may result in bad chains being accepted, and forfeited signatures being recognized as genuine. Only add certificates that originate from the parties that you know and trust.

This property is not available at design time.

Username Property (FTPClient Component)

The connecting user's username (login name).

Syntax

property Username: String read get_Username write set_Username;

Default Value

''

Remarks

Assign the user's login name to this property. Use Password to provide the password.

Abort Method (FTPClient Component)

Aborts the previous FTP service command and any associated transfer of data.

Syntax

procedure Abort();

Remarks

Use this method to abort the previous FTP service command and any associated data transfer.

Acct Method (FTPClient Component)

Sends an Account command.

Syntax

procedure Acct(AcctInfo: String);

Remarks

Some servers require the ACCT command to be sent after signing in to grant access to specific server resources.

Reply codes sometimes allow to differentiate the handling of ACCT command:

  • when account information is required for login, the response to a successful PASSword command is reply code 332;
  • if account information is NOT required for login, the reply to a successful PASSword command is 230;
  • if account information is needed for a command issued later in the dialogue, the server should return a 332 or 532 reply depending on whether it stores (pending receipt of the ACCounT command) or discards the command, respectively.

AppendBytes Method (FTPClient Component)

ClearCommandChannel Method (FTPClient Component)

Sends CCC (Clear Command Channel) command to the server.

Syntax

procedure ClearCommandChannel(GracefulSSLClosure: Boolean);

Remarks

Use this method to send a CCC command. CCC clears command channel encryption state, turning off TLS encryption.

Some servers expect this command to allow for the control channel to be properly handled by NATs.

Config Method (FTPClient Component)

Sets or retrieves a configuration setting.

Syntax

function Config(ConfigurationString: String): String;

Remarks

Config is a generic method available in every component. It is used to set and retrieve configuration settings for the component.

These settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the component, access to these internal properties is provided through the Config method.

To set a configuration setting named PROPERTY, you must call Config("PROPERTY=VALUE"), where VALUE is the value of the setting expressed as a string. For boolean values, use the strings "True", "False", "0", "1", "Yes", or "No" (case does not matter).

To read (query) the value of a configuration setting, you must call Config("PROPERTY"). The value will be returned as a string.

Connect Method (FTPClient Component)

Connects to the FTP server.

Syntax

procedure Connect(Address: String; Port: Integer);

Remarks

Call this method to connect to the FTP server residing at Address:Port.

The test is performed by attempting to change the current directory to RemoteDir, and checking the response code returned by the server.

Note that this method will return false if the directory does exist but is not accessible for the client (e.g. due to a permission issue).

Disconnect Method (FTPClient Component)

Disconnects from the server.

Syntax

procedure Disconnect();

Remarks

Call this method to disconnect from the server.

DoAction Method (FTPClient Component)

Performs an additional action.

Syntax

function DoAction(ActionID: String; ActionParams: String): String;

Remarks

FileExists Method (FTPClient Component)

Checks if a file exists on the server.

Syntax

function FileExists(RemoteFile: String): Boolean;

Remarks

Use this method to check if RemoteFile exists in the current remote directory. This method attempts to detect file existence using SIZE and MLST commands first, and falls back to LIST command if they are not available.

Please note that this command only looks for the file in the current directory. To check for existence of a file in a different directory, change to it with ChangeDir command first, then call this method.

GetCurrentDir Method (FTPClient Component)

Returns the server-side current directory.

Syntax

function GetCurrentDir(): String;

Remarks

Use this method to find out the current directory on the server.

GetFileSize Method (FTPClient Component)

For each file being uploaded a pair of FileOperation and FileOperationResult events are invoked.

UploadStream Method (FTPClient Component)

Uploads a file to the server.

Syntax

procedure UploadStream(LocalStream: TStream; RemoteFile: String);

Remarks

Use this method to upload data contained in LocalStream to RemoteFile on the server.

CertificateValidate Event (FTPClient Component)

Fires when the server's TLS certificate has to be validated.

Syntax

type TCertificateValidateEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  const Address: String;
  var Accept: Boolean
) of Object;

property OnCertificateValidate: TCertificateValidateEvent read FOnCertificateValidate write FOnCertificateValidate;

Remarks

The component fires this event upon receiving the server's certificate during TLS handshake. The subscriber to this event has to validate the certificate and return its status back to the component using the Accept parameter.

The Address parameter indicates the address of the server the connection is being established to.

This event is fired independently of the AutoValidateCertificates setting. If this setting is false, the event handler (and your code) is responsible for validating the certificate chain and returning the result back to the component through the Accept parameter. Note that setting AutoValidateCertificates to false and not performing any validation inside the handler of this event creates a serious security vulnerability, which can lead to grave consequences.

The exact validation method to use depends on your circumstances, and may range from comparing the certificate to its legit and trusted copy (sometimes called certificate pinning), to fully-fledged chain validation. CertificateValidator component is one of the options to build your chain validation on.

If AutoValidateCertificates is true, the chain has already been validated internally by the component by the time this event fires, and the value of Accept reflects the outcome of that check. You can perform your own, additional validation even when using AutoValidateCertificates mode, and adjust Accept if needed.

ControlReceive Event (FTPClient Component)

Fires when data is received via the control channel.

Syntax

type TControlReceiveEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  const TextLine: String
) of Object;

property OnControlReceive: TControlReceiveEvent read FOnControlReceive write FOnControlReceive;

Remarks

TextLine contains the data that was received, which would typically contain a reply to a command (e.g. 200 Command OK).

ControlSend Event (FTPClient Component)

Fires when data is about to be set via the control channel.

Syntax

type TControlSendEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  const TextLine: String
) of Object;

property OnControlSend: TControlSendEvent read FOnControlSend write FOnControlSend;

Remarks

TextLine contains the data to be sent, which would typically contain a command issued by the client (e.g. CWD dir).

Error Event (FTPClient Component)

Information about errors during data delivery.

Syntax

type TErrorEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  ErrorCode: Integer;
  const Description: String
) of Object;

property OnError: TErrorEvent read FOnError write FOnError;

Remarks

The event is fired in case of exceptional conditions during message processing.

ErrorCode contains an error code and Description contains a textual description of the error. For a list of valid error codes and their descriptions, please refer to the FTP section.

ExternalSign Event (FTPClient Component)

Handles remote or external signing initiated by the SignExternal method or other source.

Syntax

type TExternalSignEvent = procedure (

property OnExternalSign: TExternalSignEvent read FOnExternalSign write FOnExternalSign;

Remarks

Assign a handler to this event if you need to delegate a low-level signing operation to an external, remote, or custom signing engine. Depending on the settings, the handler will receive a hashed or unhashed value to be signed.

The event handler must pass the value of Data to the signer, obtain the signature, and pass it back to the component via SignedData parameter.

OperationId provides a comment about the operation and its origin. It depends on the exact component being used, and may be empty. HashAlgorithm specifies the hash algorithm being used for the operation, and Pars contain algorithm-dependent parameters.

The component uses base16 (hex) encoding for Data, SignedData, and Pars parameters. If your signing engine uses a different input and output encoding, you may need to decode and/or encode the data before and/or after the signing.

A sample MD5 hash encoded in base16: a0dee2a0382afbb09120ffa7ccd8a152 - lower case base16 A0DEE2A0382AFBB09120FFA7CCD8A152 - upper case base16

A sample event handler that uses a .NET RSACryptoServiceProvider class may look like the following: signer.OnExternalSign += (s, e) => { var cert = new X509Certificate2("cert.pfx", "", X509KeyStorageFlags.Exportable); var key = (RSACryptoServiceProvider)cert.PrivateKey; var dataToSign = e.Data.FromBase16String(); var signedData = key.SignHash(dataToSign, "2.16.840.1.101.3.4.2.1"); e.SignedData = signedData.ToBase16String(); };

CRL Type

Represents a Certificate Revocation List.

Remarks

CRLs store information about revoked certificates, i.e., certificates that have been identified as invalid by their issuing certificate authority (CA) for any number of reasons.

Each CRL object lists certificates from a single CA and identifies them by their serial numbers. A CA may or may not publish a CRL, may publish several CRLs, or may publish the same CRL in multiple locations.

Unlike OCSP responses, CRLs only list certificates that have been revoked. They do not list certificates that are still valid.

ExternalCrypto Type

Specifies the parameters of external cryptographic calls.

Remarks

External cryptocalls are used in a Distributed Cryptography (DC) subsystem, which allows the delegation of security operations to the remote agent. For instance, it can be used to compute the signature value on the server, while retaining the client's private key locally.

Fields

AsyncDocumentID
String

Specifies the document ID for SignAsyncEnd() call

Use this property when working with multi-signature DCAuth requests and responses to uniquely identify documents signed within a larger batch. This value helps ASiCSigner identify the correct signature in the returned batch of responses. If using batched requests, make sure to set this property to the same value on both pre-signing (SignAsyncBegin) and completion (SignAsyncEnd) stages.

KeyID
String

The ID of the pre-shared key used for DC request authentication.

Asynchronous DCAuth-driven communication requires that parties authenticate each other with a secret pre-shared cryptographic key. This provides extra protection layer for the protocol and diminishes the risk of private key becoming abused by foreign parties. Use this property to provide the pre-shared key identifier, and use KeySecret to pass the key itself.

The same KeyID/KeySecret pair should be used on the DCAuth side for the signing requests to be accepted.

Note: The KeyID/KeySecret scheme is very similar to the AuthKey scheme used in various Cloud service providers to authenticate users.

Example: signer.ExternalCrypto.KeyID = "MainSigningKey"; signer.ExternalCrypto.KeySecret = "abcdef0123456789";

KeySecret
String

The pre-shared key used for DC request authentication. This key must be set and match the key used by the DCAuth counterpart for the scheme to work.

Read more about configuring authentication in the KeyID topic.

ECCurves
String

Defines the elliptic curves to enable.

Extensions
String

Provides access to TLS extensions.

ForceResumeIfDestinationChanges
Boolean

Whether to force TLS session resumption when the destination address changes.

PreSharedIdentity
String

Defines the identity used when the PSK (Pre-Shared Key) key-exchange mechanism is negotiated.

PreSharedKey
String

Contains the pre-shared for the PSK (Pre-Shared Key) key-exchange mechanism, encoded with base16.

PreSharedKeyCiphersuite
String

Defines the ciphersuite used for PSK (Pre-Shared Key) negotiation.

RenegotiationAttackPreventionMode
TsbxRenegotiationAttackPreventionModes

Selects renegotiation attack prevention mechanism.

The following options are available:

crapmCompatible0TLS 1.0 and 1.1 compatibility mode (renegotiation indication extension is disabled).
crapmStrict1Renegotiation attack prevention is enabled and enforced.
crapmAuto2Automatically choose whether to enable or disable renegotiation attack prevention.

RevocationCheck
TsbxRevocationCheckKinds

Specifies the kind(s) of revocation check to perform.

Revocation checking is necessary to ensure the integrity of the chain and obtain up-to-date certificate validity and trustworthiness information.

crcNone (0)No revocation checking
crcAuto (1)Automatic mode selection. Currently this maps to crcAnyOCSPOrCRL, but it may change in the future.
crcAllCRL (2)Check all provided CRL endpoints for all chain certificates.
crcAllOCSP (3)Check all provided OCSP endpoints for all chain certificates.
crcAllCRLAndOCSP (4)Check all CRL and OCSP endpoints for all chain certificates.
crcAnyCRL (5)At least one CRL check for every certificate in the chain must succeed.
crcAnyOCSP (6)At least one OCSP check for every certificate in the chain must succeed.
crcAnyCRLOrOCSP (7)At least one CRL or OCSP check for every certificate in the chain must succeed. CRL endpoints are checked first.
crcAnyOCSPOrCRL (8)At least one CRL or OCSP check for every certificate in the chain must succeed. OCSP endpoints are checked first.

This setting controls the way the revocation checks are performed. Typically certificates come with two types of revocation information sources: CRL (certificate revocation lists) and OCSP responders. CRLs are static objects periodically published by the CA at some online location. OCSP responders are active online services maintained by the CA that can provide up-to-date information on certificate statuses in near real time.

There are some conceptual differences between the two. CRLs are normally larger in size. Their use involves some latency because there is normally some delay between the time when a certificate was revoked and the time the subsequent CRL mentioning that is published. The benefits of CRL is that the same object can provide statuses for all certificates issued by a particular CA, and that the whole technology is much simpler than OCSP (and thus is supported by more CAs).

This setting lets you adjust the validation course by including or excluding certain types of revocation sources from the validation process. The crcAnyOCSPOrCRL setting (give preference to faster OCSP route and only demand one source to succeed) is a good choice for most of typical validation environments. The 'crcAll*' modes are much stricter, and may be used in scenarios where bulletproof validity information is essential.

Configuration Settings (FTPClient Component)

The component accepts one or more of the following configuration settings. Configuration settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the component, access to these internal properties is provided through the Config method.

FTPClient Configuration Settings

AuthCmd:   Authorization command to be used to request an explicit SSL session.

Use this property to specify the authorization command that will be used to request an explicit SSL session. The following choices are possible: 0 - Auto, 1 - TLS, 2 - SSL, 3 - TLSP, 4 - TLSC. Different servers support different commands, so in most cases it is a good idea to set this property to 0.

CaseConversion:   Whether file names and paths should be case-converted.

Defines whether file names are converted (on the destination system) to: lowercase (1), uppercase (2).

CaseSensitive:   Case-sensitivity of file names and paths.

Whether file paths and names are case-sensitive.

CloseQuietly:   Set this to true to avoid sending QUIT command on session closure.

Set this property to true to tell the component not to send the QUIT command when closing the connection.

ConcurrentConnections:   Number of simultaneous connections for download.

The maximum number of concurrent connections that may be opened for download. This feature is not available if the server does not support file size requests.

CopyMode:   What to do with the originals of the copied files.

Defines what to do with the originals of the files which have been copied. You can choose to just leave them, delete each original right after it has been copied, or delete files only when all of them have been transferred.

ErrorOrigin:   Specifies where the error has been originated.

Specifies where the error has been originated, on the server or client side.

ErrorSeverity:   Error severity.

Specifies whether a warning or an error encountered.

EventOrigin:   Indicates the channel that has fired the event.

Check this read-only property in event handlers to identify whether the event originates from the FTP protocol's control or data channel. While some events are channel-independent (FileOperation, ListEntry), and some other are explicitly bound to the control channel (ControlSend, ControlReceive), some events may be thrown from either. Two examples of such events are CertificateValidate and RemoteSign. The property can be set to one of the following values: feoUnknown (0), feoControl (1), feoData (2).

ExtHOSTSupported:   Whether HOST extension is supported.

Use this read-only property to check whether the FTP server supports HOST command.

ExtMDTMSupported:   Whether MDTM extension is supported.

Use this read-only property to check whether the FTP server supports MDTM command. The MDTM command is used to determine file modification date.

ExtMFMTSupported:   Whether MFMT extension is supported.

Use this read-only property to check whether the FTP server supports MFMT (Modify Fact: Modification Time) command.

ExtMLSTSupported:   Whether MLST extension is supported.

Use this read-only property to check whether the FTP server supports MLST command. This command lists the directory contents on the server, although it is different from the LIST command. In particular, MLST reply has a strictly defined format.

ExtOPTSUTF8Supported:   Whether OPTS UTF8 extension is supported.

Use this read-only property to check whether the FTP server supports OPTS UTF8 ON command. This command switches the server to UTF8.

ExtRESTSupported:   Whether REST extension is supported.

Use this read-only property to check whether the FTP server supports REST (RESTART) command.

ExtSIZESupported:   Whether SIZE extension is supported.

Use this read-only property to check whether the FTP server supports SIZE command. This command returns file size.

ExtXCRCSupported:   Whether XCRC extension is supported.

Use this read-only property to check whether the FTP server supports XCRC command. It calculates a CRC checksum of the file to check its integrity during transfer.

ExtXMD5Supported:   Whether XMD5 extension is supported.

Use this read-only property to check whether the FTP server supports XMD5 command. It calculates an MD5 checksum of a file to check its integrity during transfer.

FTPBufferSize:   Buffer size in binary mode.

The size of the memory buffer used for data transfer in binary mode. Changing the buffer size may increase (or, on the contrary, decrease) the speed of file download/upload.

FTPTextBufferSize:   Buffer size in text mode.

The size of the memory buffer used for data transfer in text mode. Changing the buffer size may increase (or, on the contrary, decrease) the speed of file download/upload.

IgnoreSystemTrust:   Whether trusted Windows Certificate Stores should be treated as trusted.

Specifies whether, during chain validation, the component should respect the trust to CA certificates as configured in the operating system. In Windows this effectively defines whether the component should trust the certificates residing in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities store.

If IgnoreSystemTrust is True, certificates residing in the trusted root store are treated as if they are known, rather than trusted. Only certificates provided via other means (such as TrustedCertificates property) are considered trusted.

ListenTimeout:   Listening socket timeout.

The maximum time during which the listening socket will be opened in the active mode. If there is no connection request from the server during this time, the transfer operation will be canceled.

LocalNewLineConvention:   Defines the local newline convention.

Contains character string for the end of string indication used on the local machine. During file upload all the LocalNewLineConvention line endings are converted to newline endings used on the server. Correspondingly, for all downloaded files line endings are replaced with LocalNewLineConventionline endings. Line ending conventions are only used in text transfer mode.

MinSizeForConcurrentDownload:   Files bigger than this size will be downloaded concurrently.

The minimum size of the file for which the concurrent download is used. The value of ConcurrentConnections property is ignored for smaller files.

Mode:   What to do if the destination file already exists.

Specifies what to do if the destination file already exists. You can choose to: overwrite, append, resume, overwrite only if the destination file's size is different, save with a new name, or rename the existing destination file.

Options:   Various FTP options.

Various options of FTP connection.

Recursive:   Whether to scan subdirectories.

Whether the subdirectories should also be scanned for matching files.

TempPath:   Path for storing temporary files.

This setting specifies an absolute path to the location on disk where temporary files are stored.

TolerateMinorChainIssues:   Whether to tolerate minor chain issues.

TBD

TransferKeepAliveInterval:   Keep-alive interval for the data channel transfers.

FTPClient may be configured to send occasional NOOP commands on the control channel to circumvent control channel closures by firewalls due to inactivity. This setting sets the period, in milliseconds, after which another NOOP request is sent. The default value of this property is 0, which stands for no NOOP requests.

TransferTimeout:   Timeout for data transfer in active mode.

In active mode, specifies a time period that a client should wait for incoming data connection (when file or directory listing is to be transferred). If no data connection is accepted during this period, the data connection will be cancelled.

UseMicrosoftCTL:   Enables or disables automatic use of Microsoft online certificate trust list.

Enable this property to make the chain validation module automatically look up missing CA certificates in the public Windows Update repository.

UseProxySettingsForDataChannel:   Whether the proxy settings should be applied to data channel.

Whether the proxy settings should be applied to data channel.

UseSystemCertificates:   Enables or disables the use of the system certificates.

Use this property to tell chain validation module automatically look up missing CA certificates in the system certificates. In many cases it is beneficial to switch this property on, as the operating system certificate configuration provides a representative trust framework.

Base Configuration Settings

CheckKeyIntegrityBeforeUse:   Enables or disable private key integrity check before use.

This global property enables or disables private key material check before each signing operation. This slows down performance a bit, but prevents a selection of attacks on RSA keys where keys with unknown origins are used.

You can switch this property off to improve performance if your project only uses known, good private keys.

CookieCaching:   Specifies whether a cookie cache should be used for HTTP(S) transports.

Set this property to enable or disable cookies caching for the component.

Supported values are:

Use this property to get cookies from the internal cookie storage of the component and/or restore them back between application sessions.

DefDeriveKeyIterations:   Specifies the default key derivation algorithm iteration count.

This global property sets the default number of iterations for all supported key derivation algorithms. Note that you can provide the required number of iterations by using properties of the relevant key generation component; this global setting is used in scenarios where specific iteration count is not or cannot be provided.

EnableClientSideSSLFFDHE:   Enables or disables finite field DHE key exchange support in TLS clients.

This global property enables or disables support for finite field DHE key exchange methods in TLS clients. FF DHE is a slower algorithm if compared to EC DHE; enabling it may result in slower connections.

This setting only applies to sessions negotiated with TLS version 1.3.

GlobalCookies:   Gets or sets global cookies for all the HTTP transports.

Use this property to get cookies from the GLOBAL cookie storage or restore them back between application sessions. These cookies will be used by all the components that have its CookieCaching property set to "global".

noneNo flush (caching only)
immediateImmediate flush (real-time logging)
maxcountFlush cached entries upon reaching LogMaxEventCount entries in the cache.

LogLevel:   Specifies the debug log level.

Use this property to provide the desired debug log level.

Supported values are:

noneNone (by default)
fatalSevere errors that cause premature termination.
errorOther runtime errors or unexpected conditions.
warningUse of deprecated APIs, poor use of API, 'almost' errors, other runtime situations that are undesirable or unexpected, but not necessarily "wrong".
infoInteresting runtime events (startup/shutdown).
debugDetailed information on flow of through the system.
traceMore detailed information.

LogMaxEventCount:   Specifies the maximum number of events to cache before further action is taken.

Use this property to specify the log event number threshold. This threshold may have different effects, depending on the rotation setting and/or the flush mode.

keepolderKeep older entries in the cache upon reaching LogMaxEventCount (newer entries are discarded)

MaxASN1BufferLength:   Specifies the maximal allowed length for ASN.1 primitive tag data.

This global property limits the maximal allowed length for ASN.1 tag data for non-content-carrying structures, such as certificates, CRLs, or timestamps. It does not affect structures that can carry content, such as CMS/CAdES messages. This is a security property aiming at preventing DoS attacks.

MaxASN1TreeDepth:   Specifies the maximal depth for processed ASN.1 trees.

This global property limits the maximal depth of ASN.1 trees that the component can handle without throwing an error. This is a security property aiming at preventing DoS attacks.

OCSPHashAlgorithm:   Specifies the hash algorithm to be used to identify certificates in OCSP requests.

This global setting defines the hash algorithm to use in OCSP requests during chain validation. Some OCSP responders can only use older algorithms, in which case setting this property to SHA1 may be helpful.

Tag:   Allows to store any custom data.

Use this config property to store any custom data.

UseSharedSystemStorages:   Specifies whether the validation engine should use a global per-process copy of the system certificate stores.

Set this global property to false to make each validation run use its own copy of system certificate stores.

UseSystemOAEPAndPSS:   Enforces or disables the use of system-driven RSA OAEP and PSS computations.

This global setting defines who is responsible for performing RSA-OAEP and RSA-PSS computations where the private key is stored in a Windows system store and is exportable. If set to true, SBB will delegate the computations to Windows via a CryptoAPI call. Otherwise, it will export the key material and perform the computations using its own OAEP/PSS implementation.

This setting only applies to certificates originating from a Windows system store.

UseSystemRandom:   Enables or disables the use of the OS PRNG.

Use this global property to enable or disable the use of operating system-driven pseudorandom number generation.
