I'm looking at using XUpload Pro in a product I'm working on for a client. I need to know however, if it's possible to use FTPS for the file transfer. I didn't see anything mentioned anywhere about that (I'm not sure how Perl handles it, my trade is mostly PHP) and it's important for the client that the file transfers are secure.

FTPS - is secure FTP protocol, HTTPS - secure HTTP protocol. Browsers can upload only via HTTP or HTTPS. I saw some Java uploaders that use FTPS, but it's not much secure ptotocol, I think HTTPS & FTPS are equal security.
XUpload can use HTTPS protocol using SSL encryption. You should install certificate on your domain first, so you site available through http://site.com, then just use https:// links for upload form.
