PAM provide following TCP/UDP services for FTP application.


  File transfer is using WINSCP as portable mode.

  WinSCP.exe is downloading and extact under current user's home folder.

  for example, C:\USER\USER01\WinSCP

  And it cannot change option. So, it cannot work auto login with target account.

  File Transfer is using application which defined at "Client Application" field for external FTP client, such as WinSCP, FileZilla or so.

  So, If you need to use Auto Login, you can set with user and password as option.
  for example at "Client Application" with WinSCP for auto login.

  "c:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.exe" sftp://<User>:<Password>@<Local IP>:<First Port>

  It does not work if user does not specify in policy.

CA does not certify any external FTP client.

So, please try it and specify correct option.
