Microsoft is using Rebex FTP/SSL and SFTP in Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 and Microsoft Expression Web

  |   Martin Vobr

One of top 10 new features of Expression Web 3 was the ability to publish a website using FTPS (FTP/SSL) or SFTP.

We are proud that Rebex has contributed to this feature by licensing Rebex FTP/SSL and Rebex SFTP components to Microsoft.

These Rebex components are currently used in the following Microsoft applications:

  • Microsoft Expression Web 3
  • Microsoft Expression Web 4
  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2010
  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2012
  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2013
  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2015

We are proud that Microsoft chose us from all other vendors. Thanks!

Licensing Q&A:


I am a user of Microsoft Visual Studio or Expression Web. I want to use a Rebex SFTP/FTP in my application too. Do I have to obtain a separate license for Rebex components?


Yes. Each developer working with the component must have a developer's license. You may distribute Rebex DLLs with your app royalty free if you have purchased a license, but you cannot transfer the right to develop new applications with Rebex components to your customers.
