Resolution: Not A Problem
Affects Version/s: 2.0, 3.1
Fix Version/s: None
client: Windows SP sp4, jdk 1.6.0_24
server: Linux 2.6.32-220.4.2.el6.i686 running vsFTPd 2.2.2
apache lib: commons-net-2.0.jar or commons-net-3.1.jar or commons-net-2.0-jdk14.jar (from zehon)
I am using vsftpd ftp server on centos with our own self signed root ca certificate.
I have not installed the self signed root certificate on the client machine. Neither am I setting the Trust Manager on the FTPSClient object, using X509TrustManager instance pointing to my physical cert file.
But I am still able to use the FTPSClient bundled in any of the following jar file and send/receive the files.
commons-net-2.0-jdk14.jar (from zehon)
I was expecting that I will have to either install the self signed root ca on the client machine Or set Trust Manager etc.
Can you please explain the behavior?
