The Cerberus FTP Server Graphical User Interface (GUI) and underlying Windows Service use a distributed remote protocol called SOAP for communication. The primary function of the SOAP API is to allow communication between these two services. However, we’ve made the API available so that anyone can use it to programmatically control many functions of the server.
Cerberus FTP Server uses the gSOAP toolkit to implement Web Services. You can find out more about gSOAP on the gSOAP home page.
Please note: The SOAP API can change between releases. We do try to maintain backward compatibility, but sometimes we have to make breaking changes in the interest of improving the API. Always refer to the actual WSDL included with the Cerberus distribution you are using for the latest definitions.
