Most of these file transfer protocols should already be running on your network. Can you identify their respective default port numbers?

What your score likely means

  • 12 - Unbelievable. This can only mean two things: Either you work for JSCAPE or you're a rabid fan of this blog. We're hoping it's the latter. :-)
  • 11 - Excellent! You must be a multi-protocol wizard who eats data transfers for breakfast.
  • 7 - 10 - Awesome. You're not only an expert in secure file transfers but also well-versed in EDI and other automated, enterprise-grade data exchanges.
  • 3 - 6 -  You're familiar with client/server file transfers but probably haven't explored business process automation.
  • 1 - 2 - Only got HTTP and/or FTP, right? Time to level up and start learning secure protocols like HTTPS, FTPS and SFTP.

 

In case you're wondering...

  • AFTP is JSCAPE's accelerated file transfer protocol, a TCP-UDP hybrid for high-speed file transfers
  • AS2, WebDAV, and WebDAVS run over HTTP or HTTPS. WebDAV runs on HTTP, while the secure WebDAVs runs on HTTPS. AS2 can run over either HTTP or HTTPS.
