Data is not encrypted by default when the UDT protocol is used for data transfer. To encrypt data during UDT transfer, select the Enable Encryption option for UDT on the destination vCloud Connector node. If you are copying data between a private cloud and a public cloud, select the option on the vCloud Connector node in the public cloud.

When you copy data between two private clouds, the encryption status on the destination node determines whether UDT transfer to that node is encrypted or unencrypted. When you copy data between a private cloud and a public cloud, the encryption status on the public cloud node determines whether data transfer is encrypted or unencrypted.

Note

The SSL setting on a node has no effect when UDT is selected as the data transfer protocol. To use encryption with UDT, you must select the Enable Encryption option.

You have enabled UDT for the vCloud Connector node.
