Default Explicit & Implicit SSL ?

There are several options for SSL, auth ssl, explicit ssl, .. I also heard some people mention they only accept connections to their web server over implicit ssl..

Where can I find explanations on the differences and does FlashFXP support Implicit SSL connections?

Off hand I'm not sure of anything that explains the difference in plain english. I'm not certain I completely understand it myself.

As far as I know FlashFXP supports all methods of SSL/TLS.

Implicit SSL connects and establishes a secure connection before sending any FTP commands.

Auth SSL/TLS performs a standard FTP connection and then issues a AUTH SSL or AUTH TLS to establish a secure connection before sending the login details. I believe this would be called an Explicit SSL connection.
