Implicit (-IMPLICIT)

Use the Implicit adapter command (-IMPLICIT) to specify implicit FTPS secure connections to a server when sending or receiving data.

The -IMPLICIT adapter command implies that port number 990 is used as the default port number. To specify an alternate port number, you must include it on the command line after the specified URL. For example, ftps://


For example:

  • creates a trace verbose file in the directory where the map is located.
  • specifies that an implicit (-IMPLICIT) secure connection to the server is used.
  • specifies sending the file using FTPS to the URL address
  • specifies the user id name John Doe and a password of 1234 are used to login to this account.
  • specifies that the send file will be named mail_list after being transferred in ASCII mode (type=A).
