Connect to FTP server using only certificate, without hardcoded password

We are working on a project, where we perform file transfer from 1 system to another. The server is run using CopSSH and the client uses WinSCP API.

Currently we are evaluating ways of performing secure transfer, without using hardcoded credentials. Can this be done, by using only certificates, and without mentioning the password:
SessionOptions sessionOptions = new SessionOptions
{
    Protocol = Protocol.Ftp,
    FtpSecure = FtpSecure.Explicit,
    HostName = "ip address",
    UserName = "tester",
    TlsClientCertificatePath = "Path to certificate file",
};

Afaik, CopSSH is an SSH/SFTP server. Not an FTP server. SFTP uses private keys in general, not certificates. I do not think your current code can works against CopSSH. Please make sure you know if you are connecting to an FTP or SFTP server.
