How to define a file transfer connection string
DropStream uses a URI connection string to define how to exchange files with a remote server.
Connection String Format
DropStream File Exchange supports the following file transfer protocols:
- FTP (least secure)
- FTPS (more secure)
- SFTP (SSH + FTP) (most secure)
URL-encode usernames and passwords
Note: The username and password must be URL encoded.
Encoding tools such as URL-Encode-Decode.com can assist in encoding only the username and password portion of the connection.
