lftp and cPanel

I routinely have problems connecting to cPanel FTP servers with lftp. Much to my frustration it works fine through gFTP. After some debugging investigation it seems that lftp automatically tries to use AUTH TLS and then fails. There is a simple solution. Set the lftp setting “ftp:ssl-allow” to false. This can be done by running this command within lftp:

set ftp:ssl-allow false

  1. I’m with SliceHost on a 512mb slice. Works pretty flawlessly for me. Thinking of getting a new UK VPS as a backup though. Martin no longer needs the current one I’m using so time to finally say goodbye to EasySpace.
