KOMODO - FTPS SETUP

As of KOMODO Version 1.5 the camera can generate an FTPS (File Transfer Protocol Secure) network via WiFi or through use of the LINK ADAPTOR with a USB-C to Ethernet adapter 

This article will detail how to configure for both WiFi & Ethernet access.  

NOTE: File transfer speeds may vary depending on the strength of the signal (when using WiFi) & amount of network activity. For reliable data-transfer use a hard-wired connection. 

NOTE: Steps may differ depending on which FTP software you wish to use, consult your software’s user guide for additional assistance. For the purposes of this article FileZilla WinSCP were used. 

NOTE: When setting up FTP ensure to use FTP/FTPS and not SFTP as these are different protocols. 

NOTE: For security reasons, FTPS access information is only viewable on the actual camera. 

Camera Set-Up 

  1. Connect your camera to the network with the desired connection method (Ad-HocInfrastructure or hard-wired) & verify the connection. This confirmation will be displayed as an IP address in the WiFi or Link Adaptor settings. 
  2. Navigate to Menu > Communication > FTPS.  
      • Take note of the username & password. You can also regenerate/set a new password. 
  3. Enable the permissions you want users to have access to by toggling ‘Settings’ or ‘Media’ to the on or off position.  
  4. The camera is now set-up on the network. 

 Software Set-Up 

  1. In your FTP software of choice navigate to where you can add a new connection or ‘site’ & assign the following settings: 
      • Protocol: FTP or FTPS
      • Host: [IP ADDRESS OF THE CAMERA]
      • Port: 21
      • Encryption: TLS/SSL Explicit encryption
      • User: [USERNAME IN FTPS MENU SETTINGS]
      • Password: [PASSWORD IN FTPS MENU SETTINGS]
      • Logon Type: Normal 
  2. Press Connect.
  3. Depending on the permissions you will now have access to the desired folders. 

 Additional Information 

When uploading files to the camera ensure to use the ‘upload’ folder & then the desired sub-directory of lutscdlspresets or upgrade. Media cannot be uploaded to the camera.  

The data rate of the FTPS transfer with encryption maxes out at roughly Gigabit ethernet speeds. 

Estimated download time for a full 256GB is ~47 minutes when using a wired connection. 

FileZilla Quick Set-Up 

  1. Open the FileZilla application & navigate to the quick bar at the top of the application.blobid0.png
