How to define a file transfer connection string

DropStream uses a URI connection string to define how to exchange files with a remote server.

Connection String Format

Format: protocol://username:password@host:port

For example: sftp://joe:password123@ftp.example.com:22

Supported protocols

DropStream File Exchange supports the following file transfer protocols:

  • FTP (least secure)
  • FTPS (more secure)
  • SFTP (SSH + FTP) (most secure)

URL-encode usernames and passwords
