Re: how to use ftp with SSL / ftps on hp ux server.


You have to edit the inetd.conf 


# grep ftp /etc/inetd.conf
ftp stream tcp6 nowait root /usr/lbin/ftpd ftpd -l -L -a -z config=/etc/ftpd/security/tls.conf

Please verify whether your ftpd is configured with -z option to use SSL , like in above statement

P S : Please do this change in ftp server machine not with ftp client machine
