Net::SSLGlue::FTP - extend Net::FTP for FTPS (SSL) and IPv6
# SSL right from start
my $ftps = Net::FTP->new( $host,
SSL => 1,
SSL_ca_path => ...
# SSL through upgrade of plain connection
my $ftp = Net::FTP->new( $host );
$ftp->starttls( SSL_ca_path => ... );
# change protection mode to unencrypted|encrypted
$ftp->prot(C); # clear
$ftp->prot(P); # protected
Net::SSLGlue::FTP extends Net::FTP so one can either start directly with
SSL or switch later to SSL using starttls method (AUTH TLS command).
If IO::Socket::IP or IO::Socket::INET6 are installed it will also transparently
By default it will take care to verify the certificate according to the rules
for FTP implemented in IO::Socket::SSL.
All of these methods can take the SSL_* parameter from IO::Socket::SSL to
change the behavior of the SSL connection. The following parameters are
The method new of Net::FTP is now able to start directly with SSL when
the argument <SSL = 1>> is given. One can give the usual SSL_* parameter
of IO::Socket::SSL to Net::FTP::new.
If the connection is not yet SSLified it will issue the AUTH TLS command and
change the object, so that SSL will now be used.
Once the SSL connection is established you can use this method to get
information about the certificate. See the IO::Socket::SSL documentation.
Specifies the path or a file where the CAs used for checking the certificates
are located. This is typically etc/ssl/certs on UNIX systems.
If set to 0, verification of the certificate will be disabled. By default
it is set to 1 which means that the peer certificate is checked.
Usually the name given as the hostname in the constructor is used to verify the
identity of the certificate. If you want to check the certificate against
another name you can specify it with this parameter.
