Hello Experts

We have a scenario here. We need to connect to one of our clients FTP server using FTPS.
Our FTP client needs to be capable of presenting a certificate for connection authentication.
In WinSCP client i am unable to find such configuration .i.e. i can not find an option to store any certificate which can be used to establish a connection.

Could you please guide us regarding this issue?

Thanks in advance

Hello,

We are using c#.net for development of windows service.
Basically we have scenario where we have to upload some files from client machine as well as need to download some files to client machine.
Client has secure network and any web request going out to any web service URL must be go through their Layer 7.
E.g.
If we have to hit request to www.abc.com/TestService..... , then client change the URL to www.ClientLayer7.com/TestService...... . When request reach to Layer 7 then ClientLayer7.com is mapped to abc.com. In this way it works. In addition to this flow, the request reached to Layer 7 must contain the client certificate with it which is installed on client machine from which windows service sends request.

In this case we have client certificate fetched from certificates (X509 Certificate) but we are not getting any way to send it along with WinSCP.
It would be great if you could help us resolving this issue.

Thanks & Regards,
Sujeet Saste
