What are the settings to use with CuteFTP?

The CuteFTP “wizard” does not always set up the settings correctly. To connect to Simba Hosting with CuteFTP, you should do this:

1. Open “Site Manager” by opening the “Tools” menu and then choosing “Site Manager” and then “Display Site Manager”.

2. Add a new site, using the details described in FAQ question 1 above. In the “General” tab you should choose “Normal” as your “Login method”, and in the “Type” tab you should choose “FTP with TLS/SSL (AUTH TLS – Explicit)”.

If you are asked to accept a certificate, you should do so.
