FTP to Windows Server

I am trying to use File Adapter to get and send data to Windows Server from XI using FTP. Our XI box is on Unix. I get an error saying

Error connecting to ftp server '10.66.86.101': FTPEx: C:\test: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

Any help appreciated.

    Just a basic question. Did you configure your receipent as a FTP server for it to receive the file ?

      Hi Michael,

      We installed the ability freeware server and used it i.c.w. the windows computername. While this worked at first we came across connection problems many times and dediced to just use the UNIX system which is perfect...

      Best regards,

      Marco

    <b>C:\test</b>

    is this the value for directory parameter in your channel configuration? If yes, then it is wrong. You need to specify a absolute path wrt the ftp root directory of your FTP server.
