Is file transfer encrypted?


In the overview you say that all client connections to the server are encrypted

by default .Maybe It seems a dummy question but does it include file transfer ?



No, currently file transfers are not encrypted and it is not an option.



Hi Alex,

may I ask if file transfer uses compression?


No, file transfer does not use compression, it uses a plain TCP socket that is negotiated over the SOCKS5 protocol, or rather a subset that jabber has implemented.


Just curious if this is still the case?

If so, is there anyway to specific the file transfer proxy as another server? Ideally, we want our users to be able to connect without our VPN and chat. If we would set the file transfer proxy as an internal server, that might be a good workaround…
