WSO2 ESB supports many service level parameters in synapse configurations. Following are 3 service level parameters which you can use for protecting your files being transferred.


Passive mode is generally used in situations where the FTP server is not able to establish the data channel. One of the major reasons for this is network firewalls. While you may have a firewall rule which allows you to open up FTP channels to, WSO2's servers may not have the power to open up the data channel back through your firewall.
