there are 2 kind of protocols available: FTPS (FTP on SSL) and SFTP(using
SSH but not FTP protocol). there are 3rd party adapters for them, but i
think they are still in beta. we are in the process of choosing one of
them. but i don't know which one is better than another or which one has
large customer base.

anyone has idea about it??
