    Hi,

    On checking my server vulnerability, the Qualys scan found out that "Remote Management Service Accepting Unencrypted Credentials Detected" and pointed to FTP on TCP port xx.

    I only use SFTP. At Home »Service Configuration »FTP Server Configuration I had setup TLS Encryption support to "Required (Command/Data)". However, the Qualys scan still indicates there is the FTP on TCP port xx. Is there any way to disable only FTP while letting SFTP available? Or any other solution to this vulnerability. Any advice is welcome.

    Hello,

    SFTP uses the SSH protocol so you can disable the FTP server completely and still use SFTP if you prefer. To disable the FTP, choose "Disabled" via "WHM >> FTP Server Selection".

    Thank you.
