The open remote file from FTP is a great feature, but it doesn't support secure FTP.

Over FTPES LibreOffice can connect but the connection is not encrypted.
Over FTPS LibreOffice freezes for a while and eventually an alert box appears with a "General input/output" error.

It looks like all that is needed is for LibO to issue the AUTH TLS command after connecting to the FTP server, for those that support explicit TLS at least.
