FTPS Implicit TLS

Why is FTP Implicit TLS not supported?

Implicit FTP over TLS has never been standardized with a formal specification. Popular FTP clients may have supported it at some point, but it will not work correctly with many of the FTP servers. This is because each implementation for both FTP client and FTP server could vary because of the lack of a formal specification. So, no FTP library can support implicit FTP over TLS. Many FTP clients and FTP servers have deprecated Implicit TLS.
