In the original FTP protocol standand, there were no provisions for
encrypted FTP connections. TLS/SSL was added to the protocol later on.
Since you are using C++, then you are likely using Indy 9 or older, correct?
If so, then those versions did not support encrypted FTP connections.
TIdFTP in Indy 10 does, though. However, Indy 10 has no official install
for C++ yet, so you would have to compile and install the packages manually.
