What is required when using FTPS without a certificate (not needed in order to connectt). In VB.NET it seems as though all we sould need to do is set FTPS.CertStorage = Nothing. Correct. Has anyone tried this?

Would you be so kind to clarify what exactly do you mean by "using FTPS without a certificate"? Server-side certificate is always used when connecting via SSL/TLS protocols (which FTPS utilizes on a confidentiality layer). Client authentication is optional and should be enabled by setting ClientCertStorage property or handling the OnCertificateNeededEx event.
