NOTE: POODLE vulnerability

Use non-CBC ciphers as cipher suite by mentioning the following in the TLS configuration file or command line option:
Ex. cipher=RC4

FTP Client:
Configuration parameter is not avilable to include/exclude particular TLS/SSL protocol. Alternatively, ciphers can be disabled/enabled as below

Use non-CBC ciphers as cipher suite by mentioning the following in the TLS configuration file or command line option:

The File Transfer Protocol (FTP) enables you to transfer files between a client host system and a remote server host system. On the client system, a file transfer program provides a user interface to FTP; on the server, the requests are handled by the FTP daemon, ftpd. WU-FTPD is the FTP daemon for HP-UX systems. It is based on the replacement FTP daemon developed at Washington University. WU-FTPD 2.6.1 is the latest version of WU-FTPD available on the HP-UX 11i v1, HP-UX 11i v2, and HP-UX 11i v3 platforms.

The FTP client with SSL support is available for download from this page for the HP-UX 11i v2 operating system. Starting from May 2010, the WU-FTPD 2.6.1 bundle that you can download from this page contains the FTP daemon with SSL support for the HP-UX 11i v3 operating system.
