Passive vs. Active mode

Most firewalls and routers need the “Connect Mode” to be set to “Passive (PASV)”, but a small number of them may require you to choose Active (PORT) instead. If you have trouble, try changing that setting.

FTP-SSL vs. FTP and SFTP

The “FTP-SSL (Explicit AUTH TLS)” setting encrypts your password when Cyberduck sends it, which improves security. However, this setting may cause connection problems with some firewall and modem setups. If it doesn’t work, you can change that setting to normal “FTP”, although it's less secure.

A different secure option that doesn’t usually have problems with firewalls is called SFTP, which (despite the name) works completely different from “FTP” or “FTP-SSL”. SFTP is in many cases a better choice than FTP-SSL, but it’s a little more complicated.
