FTPS or WebDAV Server Certificate Verification

FTPS or WebDAV Server Certificate Verification

When connecting to an FTPS or WebDAV Server for the first time, or periodically afterwards, a prompt may appear before connect that details the server's certificate information and an option of whether to accept or cancel (deny).

If you have any reason to doubt the information, choose to Cancel and reach out to an Administrator, either at the company or for the server itself (if known).

In order to connect to the FTPS or WebDAV Server, accept the certificate. The security information is accepted and the connection attempt progresses. You will not be prompted on the next connection attempt.

If you wish to not be prompted for this information when connecting to an FTPS server, edit the settings for your FTPS connection in WebDrive, open the "FTP Settings" drop-down menu, then open the "Certificate Settings" drop-down menu, and choose to "Automatically accept the server certificate".

If you wish to not be prompted for this information when connecting to a WebDAV server, edit the settings for your WebDAV connection in WebDrive, open the "WebDAV Settings" drop-down menu, and choose to "Automatically accept the server certificate".
