Loging onto an ftp server

I saw a demo of your product yesterday and I was told that on the initial screen when you enter your username and password that the password in not "secure". We were connecting to a ftp site. Is it true that the first time through the password in not secure? This does not seem to make sense since it is a secure ftp program.

Thanks,

Re: Loging onto an ftp server

They've probably meant, that it is not secure to save your password to "stored session". To start session, you do not need to type password on login screen, input box there is primarily meant to enable you to save password, if you want to. If you don't enter a password there, probram will ask you for it later.

Transferring of password is of course secure (as secure as it can be).
