Hi all -

I'm experimenting with Rebex FTP+SSL and have it working with FileZilla Server and FTP+SSL Explicit.

Since I only installed a self-signed cert within FileZilla and have it installed on my local development machine, I'm trying to test a simple C# console application.

If I use this code:

parameters.CertificateVerifier = CertificateVerifier.AcceptAll; ftp.Connect(hostname, 21, parameters, FtpSecurity.Explicit);`

I can get logged in and everything is fine.

I implemented my own CustomVerifier and have it returning:

return TlsCertificateAcceptance.Other

false since I want to do some exception handling. Problem is, I have wrapped the following code within a try/catch and I seem to be getting an "The Application Has Stopped Working" window when it fails the certificate check... when I click Cancel, then the console window will display the exception -- but not from my try/catch.

What am I doing wrong? I want to get this working as a console application first so I can port it to a windows service... and I have to assume I will get certificate errors sometimes and need to handle it gracefully without crashing the service.

Any help or insight would be appreciated.

The try/catch below never seems to be used:

                try
                {
                    ftp.Connect(hostname, port, par, FtpSecurity.Explicit);
                }
                catch (FtpException e)
                {
                    Console.WriteLine("Exception: {0}", e.Message);
                    Environment.Exit(1);

                }

After clicking the application has stopped working window, the DOS window then displays below:

Line 101 is the the Ftp.Connect() line.

Applies to: Rebex FTP/SSL

Try catching TlsException:

            try
            {
                ftp.Connect(hostname, port, par, FtpSecurity.Explicit);
            }
            catch (FtpException e)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("Exception: {0}", e.Message);
                Environment.Exit(1);

            }

This is what is raised in response to TlsCertificateAcceptance.Other.
