Does Robo-FTP Support the PFX file type for certificates?

The current version of Robo-FTP supports importing and exporting certificates in PFX container files. A PFX file (Personal Information Exchange file or PKCS #12) can be named with either a .PFX or a .P12 extension. This type of file sometimes contains both a public certificate and a matching private key.

With Robo-FTP version 3.7 and later ...

To import a PKCS #12 file containing both a public certificate and a private key, enter the file name in the Certificate File field and leave the Private Key File name field empty.

With Robo-FTP version 3.6 and earlier ...

When importing certificates into Robo-FTP, files with the .pfx extension may not be immediately visible. If you are having trouble locating and importing your pfx file, follow these steps:

  • Open the Robo-FTP configurator to the SSL tab.
  • Click on the Trusted Certificates button.
  • Click on the Import button.
  • Change the Files of Type field (located at the bottom of the window) to "All Files (*.*)"

You should now be able to see your pfx file, select it, and open it.
