As of 25 October 2003:   First Health Services (provider for many Medicare systems) uses Ipswitch's WS-FTPD FTP server with the example X.509 certificate. This results in warnings if the certificate is validated because there is no proper hostname or IP address in the certificate to validate.

set auth tls verbose off    ; Or "on" for debugging
set auth tls debug off      ; ditto
set ftp debug off           ; ditto
set ftp verbose on          ; Of "off" for silent(er) running

set ftp dates on            ; Setting file dates works
set ftp filenames literal   ; Don't convert filenames
set auth tls verify no      ; Because of faulty host certificate

set ftp autologin on
set ftp passive on
set ftp autoauthentication on
set ftp autoencryption on
set ftp credential-forwarding off
set ftp authtype tls
set ftp server-character-set ascii
set ftp character-set-translation off
ftp open 21000 /user:username
if success {
    set ftp command-protection-level private
    set ftp data-protection-level private

You can use the same commands in C-Kermit and Kermit 95. In Kermit 95, you can also create the connection by making a Dialer entry and filling in its General, FTP, and TLS pages with the corresponding information.
