    I have tried this on both of my servers and both of them fails.

    I'm getting the following messages:
    Command: AUTH TLS
    Error: Connection timed out after 20 seconds of inactivity
    Error: Could not connect to server

    From my understanding, this is FTPS. How is this enabled differently from the regular FTP setup?

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    I am not seeing any issues with AUTH TLS in my test server:
    Code:
    # openssl s_client -starttls ftp -connect 127.0.0.1:21 -quiet
    depth=0 CN = ***REDACTED***, emailAddress = ***REDACTED***
    verify error:num=18:self signed certificate
    verify return:1
    depth=0 CN = ***REDACTED***, emailAddress = ***REDACTED***
    verify return:1
    220 You will be disconnected after 15 minutes of inactivity.
    user $username
    331 User $username OK. Password required
    pass $password
    230 OK. Current restricted directory is /
    
    I suspect there is an issue with the cipher suite. Have you made any customizations at WHM > Service Configuration > FTP Server Configuration? Perhaps you could also enable debugging in your FTP client for more details?

    Thanks,
