Enabling FTP/FTPS

The following modes of FTP are supported:

  • FTP (unsecure) passive mode only
  • FTP over TLS Explicit
  • FTP over TLS Implicit

The service URL for Wasabi FTP usage is the same as it is for S3 API usage (s3.wasabisys.com). The username and password used for FTP access are the same username and password used to access the Wasabi Management Console. 

Note: You may not authenticate using MFA in this instance.    

Note:   FTP over SSL and SFTP (FTP over SSH) are NOT currently supported. Be sure that you have not enabled MFA for your root account if you want to use this. 

To enable FTP/FTPS:

    1. Go to the user profile (in the upper right corner of the console screen) and click Settings
    2. Find the FTP/FTPS section on the Account Settings page
    3. Slide the option to the right. The slide option is green toggle.png when FTP/FTPS is enabled.
      When FTP/FTPS is disabled, the option is gray: toggle-off.png

    4. A message indicates that FTP/FTPS does not comply with normal IAM policies, which could be a potential security risk:Screen_Shot_2020-03-27_at_3.50.23_PM.png


If you want to continue to enable FTP/FTPS, enter agree in the message area and then click TOGGLE.

Note:   The user name and password for FTP/FTPS usage is the same as the user name and password for the root account.
