The camera now supports the FTPS file transfer protocol for secure connection to FTP servers.

  • To use FTPS, select [FTPS] as the server type when creating host profiles using [Connect to FTP server] in the network menu.

Firewall Settings

FTPS (selected by choosing [FTPS] as the server type) uses TCP port 990. File transfer may be blocked if the server firewall is not configured to allow access to this port.

FTPS Root Certificates

Before connecting to a server via FTPS, you will need to load a root certificate onto the camera. Root certificates can be managed using the [Manage root certificate] option newly added to [Connect to FTP server] > [Options] in the network menu.

  • Contact the network administrator for the FTPS server in question for information on acquiring root certificates.
