I have created my custom certificate on iis7 with FTP 7.5 on the server side & on the client side I'm using X.509 certificate with ServicePointManager and everything works fine.

But I'm not able to understand how does X.509 certificate is linked to the custom certificate created on the server. Is FTP happening in a secured way?

Please give some information on this

FTP over SSL is commonly referred to as FTPS, while SFTP is SSH File Transfer Protocol. I've updated the title and tagging accordingly. – Thorarin May 18 '11 at 7:20
This reminds me of that Time magazine interview with Star Trek technical adviser Michael Okuda: And how does the Heisenberg compensator work? "It works very well, thank you," says Okuda. – Kev May 18 '11 at 9:49
Old, unloved and unlikely to get an answer after 3 years we should close and let the cleaning faeries delete. – Iain Sep 15 '14 at 20:45
