Download the latest OpenSSL DLLs:

You need the latest OpenSSL dlls if you use Windows XP or older, or want to connect to an FTP server which uses SSL session re-use. This used to work fine, but Microsoft broke the used function (sChannel) with a recent security update. After the update, affected servers will return the following error when connecting:
OFFLINE3, error=0

Download links: 32-bit | 64-bit
