If you use a File Transport Protocol (FTP) client to send files securely to Box, please be aware that beginning March 8 all Box FTP connections will require the use of port 990. If your FTP client connection currently uses port 21, please change your setting to port 990 before March 8.

Using an FTP client with Box can be useful when you need to transfer large amounts of files, such as during server migrations. For details about using an FTP client with Box, please visit
