Important Change to Dropbox.yahoo.com - Required Use of FTPS

All dropbox.yahoo.com and asia-dropbox.yahoo.com connections will require the use of FTPS (FTP over TLS). Support for FTP will be discontinued. All client file transfers will require an explicit FTPS connection (rather an implicit FTPS connection).

FTPS will be required beginning 1/17/2018. Advertisers are advised to switch to FTPS beforehand to test their systems and processes.

After 1/17/2018, all users connecting to ftp://dropbox.yahoo.com or ftp://asia-dropbox.yahoo.com will be unable to connect and unable to update their feeds (including feeds for Dynamic Product Ads).
