Linux cPanel servers offers FTP service (port 21) in secure mode. This allows you to transfer data between your computer and the server safely. To use the service you will need to enable SSL / TLS in your FTP program as follows:
4) Activate option "Use passive mode for transfers"
If you saved session all you need to do is select the Server Type option FTPES.
So go to menu File - Site Manager and chose FTPES
If you create a new account select FTPES on Server Type section. USE PORT 21!
Site->select site.name->Edit->Servers->select server->Edit -> Connect using-> SFTP
To use FTP and File Encryption protocol TLS Explicit. Enable Passive Mode in Connection menu.
Note: If your FTP client is not listed in this section look in the documentation of your ftp client on how to enable this option. Usually it is enough if you use the address / host to connect as: ftpes://mydommain.ro or ftpes://IP, or Explicit TLS or TLS auth. Connection port is 21!
