Hi guys, I know FTP is plain text traffic, but is there any way to put some SSL or TLS encryption to the Asus FTP Server to add some security? I would like to have it exposed to the WAN but in a secure way. SFTP... Thanks

Install SFTP Server
From optware:
Code:
ipkg install openssh-sftp-server
From entware:
Code:
opkg install openssh-sftp-server

TLS support will be possible with 376.49, however you will have to manually configure everything yourself.

I´ll Be patient then, will this manuall config will be by GUI or code? Thanks!

By manual, I mean you will have to do it all over SSH: generating the certificate, modifying the config file with a postconf script, etc...

I can't seem to find any HOW-TO/Documentation on how to set up FTP over TLS. Can some please point me in the right direction? Cheers

If you are not hung up on FTP per se, scp/winscp should work out of the box. It is secure (as secure as your ssh connection). If you absolutely need sftp, you can install it like what is mentioned in post #3

EDIT: Dude! Just noticed this was a 2014 thread o_O. Let old threads RIP ;)
