OpenSSL DLLs for Total Commander
Direct download link to OpenSSL DLL files for FTPS in Total Commander

Total Commander contains partial support for FTPS protocol. It has to be completed by downloading and copying DLL files from OpenSSL distribution into the Total Commander program folder. According to the instruction in Total Commander it means to download and instal whole OpenSSL and then take the DLLs from the installed OpenSSL. This is quite complicated.

To simplify this task, this page constains direct download links to particular DLLs. Enabling FTPS in the Total Commander is just as easy as downloading these two DLLs and saving them into the folder Program Files\totalcmd.

For 64 bit Total Commander use these dlls, (th 32 in the dll name is ok):

For completenes, the OpenSSL installator is available at

Subject: If using the 64 bit Total Commander ...
If you are running the 64 bit version of Total Commander, make sure to download the 64 bit version of Open SSL. The best link is here: Also you will probably need the MS VC 2008 redist here: Then copy the two files shown above to the Total Commander directory.

Here is the master link to all Windows binaries:

PS. Please use this link, rather than the files provided above as these are the latest.

BKS you saved my time ;-)
It is really necessary to use \'ssleay32.dll\' and \'libeay32.dll\' from Win64OpenSSL Light version.

First I tried to use libraries from this page, but my TC 8.01 64bit crashed all the time I enabled SSL/TLS checkbox.
Your steps solved the problem.
Thank you

Subject: I still miss FTPS; errors remain
After copying the dll\'s and restarting TC I still have the error message in TC that I should instal the opensll-dll\'s. So, what do others after copying the dll\'s? Restart pc as well? What else?

Thanks for the clues :) The 64 bit DLLs from this page seems not to be compatible with TC 8.01 64 bit (it crashes). But installing \"Win64 OpenSSL v1.0.1e\" from one of the links above helped - and there was no need to copy any DLLs since they are in Windows directory after installation.

Dear friends,

The providen files _don\'t_ work in topical Total Commander 8.01 @ Win 8.1 x64 edition.

So I\'d install OpenSLL 1.0.f and extract the latest OpenSSL-files, which works:

You have to have installed

too or TOTALCMD will freeze after setting FTPS.

Sorry about my previous post, you have to have installed c++ package but copying DLLs to totalcmd directory does not work (tested on 8.51a 64b version) simply install OpenSSl and in installation wizard choose copy dlls to windows system directory and thats it!

Subject: Solution - please fix your instructions here.
The DLLs provided here are non-functional. They cause TC to crash when trying to enable SSL. Solution: Download and extract libeay32.dll and ssleay32.dll to the TC program directory, overwriting any previous versions of the files. This will work.
