Topic "crypting algorithm"

Author Message


I try to generate password on my own (without using winscp interface) to store it in the .ini file for ftps connection.

I try to find the information in the documantation but i failed. I would know wich crypting algorithm is used to store password into the .ini file (directive Password=). I know the Master password use AES!

"Saved passwords are stored in a manner that they can easily be recovered."

I would know what is exactly the "manner"

Thank you !

You do not have to encrypt the password at all:
