Error connecting to ftp server

Dear All,

I'm doing file to file scenario through XI. The receiver communication channel is a normal file adapter and it is working perfectly fine . My sender communication channel is a FTP adapter. I'm trying to send a file from FTP to a folder on my integration engine. When i went into adapter monitoring, i got the error in the sender file adaper for ftp. The error is - " Error connecting to ftp server ".

normally, i'm able to do the ftp from integration server to my ftp server, but through XI , it is giving me the above mentioned error. I think some of my properties are not specified correctly. Kindly advise . The properties that i have specified in the ftp adapter are -

adapter type - file

transport protocol - ftp

message protocol - file

adapter engine - integration server

server - ip address of the ftp host

port - 21

username - username of the ftp server

password - password of the ftp user

connect mode - per file transfer

transfer mode - binary

folder - name of the folder created on the ftp root directory ( without the path ) Do i need to give the full path here ?

file name - file in the above specified folder

Kindly let me know.

Regards.

Naveen

    Naveen,

    Have you tried to look into the runtime/error logs of the adapter engine? There you wil find relevant information about the adapter that most of the times remains hidden.

    You can access these logs via the Visual Administrator Tool located on the XI server.

    Cheers,

    Roberto

    HI Naveen,

    This link explains all the parameters that need to be entered for a file adpater. Just check it out and compare it with your values and your FTP settings.

    //folder - name of the folder created on the ftp root directory ( without the path ) Do i need to give the full path here ?

    Yes, i think you should specify the full path here.
