How could WinSCP accept automatically ANY SSL Certificate ?

Hi all,

I am using WinSCP on a network of several PCs in FTP-S Explicit SSL certificate mode.
My host Techincian, suddendly decided to change their FTP-S certificate, informing me that this could happen without any notification. This has caused a pop up in WinSCP in order to accept/refuse the new Certificate. This on more than 100 PCs all togheter !
I DO NOT want to manually reply to this popup, and I do not want to specify certification fingertips to WinSCP (see OPEN -explicitssl -certificate"xx:xx..."").

Does exist a possible way to allow WinSCP accept ANY host SSL Certificate without careing about ?

Thanks in advance for helping

Could I avoid this issue with this workaround ?

Hi Prikryl,

as my IT could provide me the new certificate they will use before doing that, do you thing is enough for me just modify the WinSCP.ini, section [FtpsCertificates] just adding the new certificate ?
I have noted that is possible to coexist more than one certificate togheter : seems to be working.

For example somethng like this :

[FtpsCertificates]
1b:ff:08:e8:68:6b:bf:e9:38:50:2c:1b:f0:82:87:63:a6:08:05:e3=
3f:7f:e5:7d:89:91:0c:f4:b0:8c:80:f9:4b:88:7f:2d:b5:81:e8:49=

I have noted the sign "=" at the end , seems added as a separator.

If a modify the WinSCP.ini in advance will be ok ??

ciao

Yes, you can have as many certificates configured as you like.
