Can I assume it really is a secure connection or do I need to change "ftp" to "FTPs" or something else? Fetch did accept the upload without error.
Server scheme         use ssl            is protocol
ftp://                           false                  ftp
ftp://.                          true                  ftp over SSL explicit
ftps://                         true                    ftp over SSL implicit
