NAS326 - setting up FTP over TLS

Options
Hi Guys

I'd like to use Filezilla to log into my NAS326 from outside using the more secure "explicit FTP over TLS" rather than "plain FTP". On my old NAS325 I think I did this by self certification - but how do I do this on the 326?

Help Please (I am a complete amateur!)?

Ken

    Sadly, I don't think so - the instructions suggest I can but then go on as follows:

    Step1
    Create a Certificate Signing Request
    Step2
    Download the Certificate Signing Request to your local computer
    Step3Submit the downloaded certificate signing request to certain CAStep4Get the signed certificate from this CAStep5Import The Signed Certificate

    - I think this means I have to pay a CA for certification?
    Thanks for any help, it's appeciated

    I suppose you can use a self signed certificate. The 325 did so, and maybe the self generation is disabled because browsers don't accept self signed certificates anymore without user interaction.
