How do I use multiple SSL client certificates?

This article applies to v3.5.x and earlier. Robo-FTP 3.6.x and later supports multiple SSL client certificates natively. See the Help file for details on using multiple SSL client certificates with Robo-FTP 3.6.x and later.

Normally, Robo-FTP only stores one SSL client certificate in your configuration.

It is possible to use multiple client certificates by creating multiple settings (.set) files and importing each one with a script command before logging onto the corresponding FTPS server.

  1. Create entries for the FTPS servers using the Manage Sites tab of the configurator.

  2. Create or import a client certificate using the Configure SSL tab of the configurator.

  3. Export your settings from the File menu in the main Robo-FTP console window. Choose a name that will help you identify which certificate is stored in those settings.

  4. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for each client certificate.

  5. In your script, use the IMPORT command to change your configuration to match the certificate you want to use and then use the FTPLOGON command to log in.
