    Hello All!

    I am trying to setup a Microsoft DHCP server with options 161, 162, 184, and 185. We have 161 and 162 configured and ready, but I have a question about the 184 (FTP User ID), and 185 (FTP User Password)

    Are these credentials sent as clear text? Is it possible to use SFTP, or secure the password being transmitted?

    Hi ErisS,

    no, FTP credentials are always send clear text to the clients. SFTP is currently not supported as an option.
    The only thing would be to use HTTPS for upgrading and wnos.ini sending.
    Go to my website on look on the Porducts site. There a PDF on how to set it up.
