As you say, this is new territory. G.Fast isn't VDSL2, so I guess that my formal answer at present has to be that DSLstats doesn't support G.Fast. And to be honest I don't know if I've got the energy/capability/time to add that support. I will see if I can locate the source of that error and trap it, but I'm afraid it will take some time.

I found but after  one upload using SFTP , DSLstats hung, needing a forced restart. Then I found all the SFTP settings were blank, I've tried twice with the same results

However Iíve just realised my hosting needs FTPS I assume thatís not included. I can connect and upload using P21 and the middle option, but as above crashes after one upload.

It was my understanding that FTPS is deprecated these days. I can add SSL support if it's really required, but I would appreciate advice on its security status.

Hi roseway

Kudos to you for sftp/curl which works lovely on our platforms

I thought only implicit ftps was deprecated and explicit still ongoing

I suppose in reality, there will always be a mixture but using explicit ftps, could allow for insecure ftp to be used if secure handshake fail, whereas implicit ftps would drop connection

We do not use ftps, only sftp as sftp is to us, a better system

Many thanks

John

Well I use 1&1 on a hosted MS Server 2016, and the only permitted access is FTPS on Port 990. I'm not sure on the security, but its quite a major provider and this is a "Pro" package. They changed from FTP around 1 year ago

Hi g3uiss

Thatís a window server so explicit ftps would be used, so it has nothing to do with size of provider

This is most likely why explicit ftps is still in use, and as you stated, fallback to 21 works

Many thanks

Thanks for the extra information. I'll add SSL support in the next release.

John. Thanks. I was meaning to say exactly that and suggested that I would expect that provider to have the required security. I believe they moved from Windows2012 which still supported FTP or rather my Server 2012 does 😄

Thanks to Eric in advance for adding the support.

Minor issue raised its head yesterday, something prevented the sftp sessions from connecting. After four attempts dslstats gives up.

Would it be possible to send a warning email when this happens?

@roseway - I realise the list of requests and additions is never ending and this is not a major issue.

@marjohn56: I'll see what I can do. The logical thing would be to add it to the alerts system.
