    I have installed a rapidssl certificate for all my services and everything works fine, but FTP is not playing ball. I have installed a certificate against the hostname but when I try to connect using an FTP client, it connects, but then doesn't seem to be able to enumerate the directory/files. This is the log from the connect session... any clues? I'm trying to connect as FTP with TLS/SSL. The other option in my FTP client doesn't even connect.

    I'm not sure how to test this from the command line as I am unaware of a command line method of connecting to FTP with SSL.
